Numeracy is a critical skill required by nurses to ensure patient safety. This includes performing tasks such as calculating a drug dose or infusion rate safely and accurately. However, research tells us that the numeracy skills of healthcare professionals remain poor.
This module will review the relevant numeracy skills required to accurately calculate oral and intravenous medication doses. Identifying and applying the appropriate formula to medication dose calculation as well as accurate calculations for medication doses by body weight will also be analysed. This module is underpinned by the NSQHS standard 4 on Medication safety.
