Monthly Training for Compliance
Medication Training and Medical Education
IMS Pharmacy is keenly aware of the importance of medication training and medical education. That is why we support our partner facilities with comprehensive programs and staff training to meet regulatory requirements and promote accurate medication administration, including the six rights: Right patient, right medication, right dosage, right route, right time, and right documentation.
Compliance Classes Offered Monthly by IMS
The IMS Team offers a comprehensive monthly training program that is adjusted based on community feedback and designed to comply with new regulatory requirements. The IMS Team’s 6-Hour and 2-Hour Medication Assistance Classes are complimentary when IMS serves as your preferred pharmacy, but open spots are sometimes available for staff from other local facilities. IMS Classes include:
- 6-Hour Initial Medication Assistance Class (Offered Monthly by IMS) – The IMS Training Team offers this 6-Hour Initial Medication Assistance Class for new medical technicians (Med Techs). Typically, the IMS Team sends monthly training schedules to our partner facilities, but you may also call IMS to request the schedule for upcoming classes.
- 2-Hour Annual Medication Assistance Class (Offered Monthly by IMS) – This 2-Hour Annual Medication Assistance Class is offered for medical technicians (Med Techs) to take once-per-year. The class is offered monthly by the IMS Training Team, or it can be accessed online through third-party websites.
