Understanding Pharmacotherapeutics in Health Care
The NMC Code clearly sets out the need for the Nurse to understand care interventions undertaken. It’s not enough therefore just to administer medicines that have been prescribed but to understand their relevance, actions and efficacy.
In this tutorial, the participants will have the opportunity to gain a knowledge and understanding of principles of pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics which can be applied to the practice of medicines administration. It is targeted at nurses, student nurses/midwives paramedics and pharmacy techs but open to any member.

Supporting Union Reps
Bullying in a work environment can cause tremendous emotional distress as well as severely impact on people’s capacity to carry out their role. Employers have a duty of care to employees and there are a number of remedies you can pursue if you believe you are being bullied. For managers it is important to ensure that staff are enabled to work in a supportive environment which maximises their ability to contribute. Sometimes there is a blurred line between performance management and a belief by the staff member that they are being bullied. This course will explore the employer’s duty of care, what constitutes bullying, what remedies are available to someone who is experiencing it and how managers can respond pro-actively.
