Injectable Medication Administration Training (IM and SubQ)
Recent changes to Wisconsin law allow pharmacists to administer non-vaccine injections once they have completed the appropriate accredited instruction. A series of comprehensive instructional modules are being developed, but for those pharmacists who have completed vaccine administration training, completion of this one-hour presentation, recorded at the PSW Educational Conference on April 6, 2017, and learning assessment will allow pharmacists to administer IM and subcutaneous non-vaccine injections in Wisconsin.
- Describe the authority of Wisconsin pharmacists to provide non-vaccine injections and outline the legal requirements of pharmacists when giving a non-vaccine injection
- List the five rights of administration and discuss how you will utilize the “five rights” when administering a non-vaccine injection in your practice
- Outline the best practices in documentation of medication administration; and
- Discuss the opportunities and barriers for pharmacists to implement non-vaccine injection services in a community pharmacy setting
Who Should Attend
