An overview of Medicines Reconciliation An Internet-based training package from CoAcS Ltd
Purpose Written in conjunction with the South West Medicines Information and Training group (SWMIT). The package delivers an online instructional guide covering the process of medicines reconciliation and prepares learners with the skills and knowledge necessary to enter into a more detailed training programme.
Three user roles Organisation lead –usually just one person (for system operations) –creates user accounts and assigns assessors to locations / groups Assessors –set up and approve learner access –provide feedback on diary log content –award certificates Learners –access to training materials, reflective diary and assessments
Setup Assessors and Learners are created at Locations by the Organisation Lead for each Trust site.
User profiles All Learners must be given a user name and password and be approved before they can access the materials.
Four modules There is an introduction and then two Levels of training material. There are also some personal and professional pre-requisites to be attained before a learner is entered onto the system.
Learning materials Each learning activity is explained and presented in a logical order over a number of screens and pages.
Other learning resources Each page has further resources available including documents, references and electronic links.
Reflective diary log A reflective diary log is available for each learner to record their learning experiences. These might be used for CPD purposes.
Assessment Learners are then assessed on their knowledge of the learning materials. There are 20 multiple choice questions selected at random for Level 1 and 10 questions for Level 2.
Results On completion, learners will see the results of their assessment. The pass rate is 80%. Three attempts are possible. (Answers are blanked out here!)
Certificates Once the learner has demonstrated a suitable level of competence and Level 1 is complete and a certificate issued, the Level 2 assessment becomes accessible.
