5. How to Check Your Answer

In this final video of the 'Calculating Doses' module, you will learn how to check the answers that you get in your drug calculations.

You can do this by applying a series of tests to your answer:

  • The 'reasonable test'
  • Performing the calculation (non-calculator)
  • Performing the calculation (calculator)
  • Checking the BNF or BNF for Children

And remember, if in doubt, check your answer with someone else before administering the drug!
