New Self-Study Module: Medication Management

In most practice settings, medication management is a significant role for LPNs and must be performed in accordance with legislation, regulation, CLPNA policies, and employer requirements. The purpose of this online self-study module is to provide direction to LPNs about their role in medication management. This module is based on the CLPNA’s Medication Management Policy and will be of interest to any nurse – newly graduated or experienced – who wants to benefit from an opportunity to refresh their knowledge in medication management. The learning module follows the nursing process and refers to the assessment, planning, preparation, implementation, administration, evaluation, and documentation required in the management of medication.

Medication management is integral to the LPN profession. LPNs are accountable for their role in medication management and adhering to the principles outlined in the Medication Management policy. LPNs are responsible to ensure they possess the required knowledge, skill, and judgment to manage medications safely and competently. The CLPNA supports a collaborative and interdisciplinary approach that includes patients and families as part of safe medication management practices.

The College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta asks all Licensed Practical Nurses to take advantage of this learning resource.
