Medication Management

Our role is to work with our partners to develop a health system that ensures people can access excellent care closer to home.

Our Medication Management eLearning is facilitating the professional development of unregulated health workers, in residential aged care facilities and in the community, in the supervision and assistance with medication administration.

“I found the package helpful to reinforce my medication administration skills and establish my scope of practice clearly as an unregulated health care worker. It was simple and easy to navigate, and I enjoyed the interactive style of learning, great course!”

– Rebecca Hadley, Lodge Supervisor, Leeuwin Lodge
