Hi, I have been asked to give an inservice to the CMA's at the LTC facility that I work at. We have had an increase in med. errors in the past year. I need to go over the basics, though the CMA's know them and will use them when they are being monitored for med pass. I need something to get their attention and also I'd like to also maybe review a med. classification or give info on new meds. I want them to actually leave feeling they have learned something and also realize the importance of their job, to become more responsible, and take more pride in their work. Any help or suggestion for an inservice would be appreciated.

Thanks, Donna

Not an instructor, but an LPN who had a hard time with pharmacology. You may not actually use this book in order to teach them, but I would certainly suggest this text for them to read during their own time. Essentials of Pharmacology for Health Occupations by Ruth Woodrow. Very simple and easy to understand. You can view this for yourself at: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0827370229/102-7635403-7187356. Good luck!
