Administration of Emergency Medication Training
Training dates for Initial and Update sessions were sent to the schools prior to the summer holidays along with the Annual Update Checklist.
Education staff must book training sessions on Educations CPD on line via FISH.
All educational establishments should have someone trained whether or not they have pupils who require medication at that time. Problems arise when pupils who do require medication enroll in the school mid-term and the pupil cannot be accommodated until someone has training.
It is important to reflect the innovative and partnership working that is ongoing across all services in Fife. To help this process please could you let me know of any work or events you would like to share with others and we will put it on the website.
The website will continue to be reviewed and updated in line with national and local developments.
