Internationally, nurses are responsible for the accurate administration of drugs to patients in their care, something that is vital to maintaining the safety and well-being of patients. Whilst educational input to drug administration is provided, there remain a high number of errors in medicine calculations and delivery. To address these areas of concern different approaches to the development of knowledge and skills in medicine administration are being explored. This paper discusses the development and proposed implementation of a virtual drug round (VDR) in a University in the United Kingdom that aims to support the safe administration of medicines. It reflects on the processes of developing the VDR in some detail and considers the implementation plan. Proposals for evaluation are also considered that will inform ongoing development and transferability
