The combination of new and current medicines requires nurses to continually expand their knowledge and that of their patients. The onus for safe and quality practice remains with the professional handling of medicine. It is, therefore, imperative that nurses engage in evidence-based education. Purpose of Program: The purpose of this seminar is to provide up-to-date, evidence-based knowledge about the safe and quality use of medicines in nursing practice. Learning Objectives: • Analyse key concepts in pharmacology, such as how medicines exert their action, why the body’s handling of a medicine differs between individuals, and how this relates to appropriate dosage • Explain the reasons for different dosage forms and the advantages and disadvantages of different routes of administration • Source and appraise information about medicines and explain to a student nurse or colleague how to find and identify high-quality sources of information • Recognise circumstances that expose patients to medication misadventure and how to avoid them Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
