What can safeMedicate do for you?
I like to stay on the top of my game. On the ward we tend to see the same dosage regimes time and again. safeMedicate helps me practice a wide range of drug calculations which gives me the confidence to work safely in any situation.
I love the interactive exercises and the way they help me relate what I’m doing to practice. The feedback I get is great and really helps me understand how well I’m doing and where I need to improve.
We use the assessment features for pre-employment testing and periodic audit activities. It’s easy to swiftly and accurately verify drug calculation competencies and provide the necessary training for staff who need additional support.
Simple assessment scheduling and automated marking are real time-savers. It’s also important for me to know how well students are doing and the reporting tools provide a level of analysis that pin-points their strengths and weaknesses.
