Add value to your existing qualification by gaining the skills you need to safely assist clients with medication.
If you are an existing carer or support worker currently employed* in the health or community services sector and are looking to expand your skills, this online skill set will provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to support a person to self-administer medication.
In this skill set you’ll learn about commonly used medications and potential side effects, the safe administration of oral medication, drops, lotions and creams and the relationship between medications and body systems. You will also have the opportunity to apply your knowledge in a simulated, hands-on learning environment, and within your current workplace.
