Managing medicines in schools (with MOSA)
Date: Wednesday 8 February, 2017
Why should you attend? In addition to increasing numbers of UK students on prescribed medication, the developing international nature of our schools mean that staff are having to manage the various challenges associated with medicines brought in by overseas students. The legal and practical aspects are complex and schools need to be able to engage with parents and students to both reduce any risks associated with non-UK medicines as well as ensuring the health and well-being of such students.This workshop will provide an opportunity to update delegates’ knowledge on this complex area and review existing practice with a view to sharing best practice in terms of policies, protocols and partnership.
