Btec health and social care level 3, unit 41, medicationWatch
I'm so confused, I really don't get this unit. The legislation is so confusion.
I really don't know what I'm doing, I have to write about the legislation regarding the prescribing, administration, dispensing, disposing and storing of meds (PADDS).
The legislation I have to write about is:
The Misuse of Drugs Act (1971)
The Medicines Act (1968)
The Misuse of Drugs (safe custody) Regulations (1973)
The Health and Safety at Work Act (1974)
COSHH Regulations (1999)
Hazardous Waste Regulations (2005)
Care Standards Act (2000)
Mental Capacity Act (2005)
The Access to Health Records Act (1990)
The Data Protection Act (1998)
The Administration and Control of Medicines in Care Homes and Children’s Services (2003)
I have to evaluate it to distinction level, but I can't find any accessible literature one it (unless it's the actual piece of legislation which is all jargon). My assignment is due in this week and I'm tearing my hair out!
The Medicine act 1968:
Misuse of drugs act 1971:
Misuse of drugs (safe custody) regulation 1973:
Access to health records 1990
Hazardous waste regulation 2005:
