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

Really useful addition to my learning, good follow up to the 2 day course, good networking KC

Well presented, engaging and supportive, good opportunity to share ideas, covered all areas, useful references provided SH

Brilliant refresher and update, great links and support. Internet exercises very helpful. Good peer learning and experience. KH

 


CDAO 2 Day Course – London, March 2015

Invaluable learning and understanding event.  Thoroughly recommend this training to new and existing CDAOs.  Great networking opportunity. RK

Excellent course.  I feel I have updated my knowledge and I have prepared an action plan to take back to my organisation to improve practice and develop skills and knowledge of my colleagues. LO

Gail and Graham were excellent at running the 2 days, making the sessions interactive, interesting amusing and most of all, educational.  thank you. JH

I would have awarded this course 5 points to every outcome. (the feedback form only goes up to 4!).  I found it enjoyable and informative. The presentations were engaging and enabling.  It was a pleasure to attend. JS

 


CDAO 2 Day Course – Warrington – November 2015

Thank you Gail and Graham for an informative and enjoyable two days of training.  I thought the course content and delivery was excellent and most helpful to me understanding the role of AO.  The best training I’ve been on for a long time.  Both of you were very credible, authentic and knew what you were talking about because of your experience. Can’t really think of any improvements. Thank you Iain, Ward Manager

Now more aware of responsibilities as AO. Not a role in name only but there are serious consequences when things go wrong.  Whilst new to the role, this course highlighted where I had gaps in knowledge.  This has been remedied so whilst learning continues I have greater awareness of how the role of AO can influence the way in which SOPs are constructed and followed. Karl, Ward Manager

A very informative course covering all the areas required to give the knowledge and skills required to be an accountable officer.  I dont think there is anything I would change or enhance for future courses as the course was enjoyable and the tutors were very knowledgable on the areas they were presenting. Claire, Unit Manager

 


CDAO 2 Day Course – York, October 2015

‘Brilliant 2 day course with @SancusSolutions for AO training. Really valuable and much to take back to @NHSLiverpoolCH.

Very informative and interactive sessions. Although quite heavy course content it was delivered in a way that was both fun and interesting – Sharon

I valued the discussions and mixed experiences of the group. This was the most informative and valuable course I have attended for a long time. I valued the experience of the trainers – Jayne
