Controlled Drugs Accountable Officers Training

Controlled Drugs Accountable Officers Training

Controlled Drug Accountable Officers are responsible for the safe management and use of Controlled Drugs within their organisation along with 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 Drug Accountable Officer Training is invaluable and our accredited courses are ideal to count towards your Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

The course looks at

  • Why we are here, and covers the background to the legislation and legislation updates.
  • Introducing practical tips for performing the role and covers advice and information about who is there to support you.
  • Corporate governance and the use of Standard Operating Procedures – these are issues that would be scrutinised during a Care Quality Commission inspection.

One of the roles of a Controlled Drug Accountable Officer is to investigate or to oversee investigations conducted on their behalf. A question to ask yourself is, if an incident arose, would my investigations at present stand up to the detailed scrutiny which would ultimately happen? The investigations training incorporated into the course will give you a working knowledge of the relevant legislation which you can then apply to all of your investigations, giving you confidence in the knowledge that you could withstand scrutiny at any level.

  • As the course progresses the role is brought to life through the use of a scenario, which gradually builds and informs group discussions.
  • Real life case studies will be discussed and attendees will learn from each other’s experiences.

Note – Certificates of attendance are provided to all delegates who complete the 2 Day Controlled Drug Accountable Officer course which can then be used as evidence of 12 hours of CPD for appraisal and re validation purposes.

The training is delivered by an experienced former Accountable Officer and our lead Investigations trainer.

We offer frequent two day comprehensive Controlled Drug Accountable Officer interactive training packages, delivered online via the Teams platform; see the dates above.

We also offer bespoke ‘in house’ training packages tailored for individual organisations and delivered at a venue of your choice.

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