Controlled Drugs Accountable Officer Training

Controlled Drugs Accountable Officer Training

 

 

 

 

Controlled Drugs Accountable Officers are responsible for the safe management and use of Controlled Drugs for their organisation, co-operating and sharing information relating to concerns about their use and management under the Controlled Drugs (Supervision of Management and Use) Regulations 2013. Controlled Drugs Accountable Officer Training is invaluable and our accredited courses are ideal to count towards your Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

We offer a range of training for CDAO’s. A two day comprehensive Controlled Drugs Accountable Officer training package delivered at regional venues throughout the year or a two day, bespoke, ‘in house’ training package tailored for individual organisations and delivered at a venue of their choice.

We also offer an annual one day refresher Controlled Drugs Accountable Officer training, again at regional venues, bringing Accountable Officers up to date with developments over the last two years.

Our courses have been designed in consultation with NHS trainers, the Association of Police Controlled Drug Liaison Officers and Accountable Officers to equip Accountable Officers and those supporting them with the knowledge and skills required to identify and assess information in order to comply with and fulfill obligations under current legislation.  The training is delivered by an experienced former Accountable Officer.

Our ‘pre-CQC inspection‘ audit for Controlled Drugs Accountable Officers is a tailored package that will help you identify your strengths and weaknesses and generate individual solutions to achieve the required standards.

Sancus Controlled Drugs Accountable Officer Training courses are now accredited by SFJ Awards through their Accredited Learning Professionally (ALP) scheme. If you wish to receive this accreditation please ensure you select this option when booking your course.

Certificates of attendance are provided to all delegates which can be used as evidence of CPD for appraisal and revalidation purposes

Pre-CQC Inspection Audit.

 

Our tailored audit will help you identify your strengths and weaknesses and generate individual solutions to achieve the required standards. The number of days required will depend on the size of the organisation but on average it is expected that three days will suffice.  This will involve a former Accountable Officer and a Pharmacist spending two days reviewing protocols and procedures and preparing a final report which will be delivered both verbally and in hard copy to the organisation concerned.

The cost of this pre-inspection audit is £1500 + VAT plus travel and accommodation.

Please contact us and we will be happy to discuss your needs in more detail.

“The course was well paced over the 2 days. Course content had the information and detail required to support the AO in their role as well as being well presented and with well thought through supporting material. There were many learning experiences shared which i found very helpful as well as good guidance in what is expected and what to put in place in the work place” – MO.

“The session material and training delivery were excellent and provided by two well informed and experienced trainers with practical examples and personal experience in the role of Accountable Officers.
