Are you lacking the skills and knowledge to administer medications in an aged, disability or home care sector? If so, then we have the solution for you.
Our Course (HLTHPS007 Administer and monitor medications) is an online self-paced program. The course will provide you with training to safely and effectively administer prescribed medications and document correctly and confidently monitor the client.
What will you learn?
You will learn to perform medication administration, subcutaneous medication, oral, topical and PR medications, use of a nebuliser, eye and ear drops. When you enrol, this course can be completed at your own pace, with the support of our trainer. Demonstration of medications being administered to people is a mandatory part of the course and forms part of the assessment for this unit. Students must demonstrate the required skills either in the workplace or can attend a one-day face-to-face workshop where the assessment will be conducted.
Care services in Australia are constantly expanding; therefore, skilled care workers are in high demand. More often than not, the elderly and disabled clients in our care have a complex medication regime that often includes high-risk medications. It is vital that our carers have the skills and knowledge to support our clients and provide professional care and maintain the high standards that we all expect.
