Administration of medicines: Learning exercises

Last updated: Tuesday, July 12, 2022

There is a quiz to help reinforce your learning about administering medicines here. You can look things up if you need to. 

Real clinical problems

Look at these real clinical problems and decide what further questions you’d ask and where you would look for information.
When you’re ready, here are our suggested answers. Do you agree? If you want to, you could talk to your tutor or a colleague about them or record them as a CPD exercise.

Do an enquiry in a Medicines Information (MI) centre

Finally, if you have access to the MiCAL training package (subscription required) you may like to undertake question numbers 7, 15, 16 and 19 in its database of example MI enquiries, which involve scenarios where the administration of a medicine is a major component of the enquiry.
