Turn your passion for helping into a career with the training courses you need

If you have a passion for caring for and helping people, a job in an aged care setting might be right for you. To do this important work, you’ll need to fulfil certain training requirements, and this may include assisting clients with medication. Many people do not have the ability to assist clients with their own medication and rely on their carers to assist in this task safely and correctly for them. A training course can teach you what you need to know to carry out the task of assisting with medication as well as make you a more attractive candidate for these and other jobs.

At Nepean Industry Edge Training, we offer HLTHPS006 Assist Clients with Medication – a course designed to teach you the skills and knowledge needed to provide assistance with medications and complete the required documentation. This course will also teach you how to support a client who is self-administering medication. It is an essential course for community services and health workers who have authority in their territory or state to assist with medication administration.

In HLTHPS006 Assist Clients with Medication –  you will learn policies and procedures for medication as well as the applicable acts and regulations, duty of care requirements, and documentation and reporting. You will also learn what you need to know about handling, and storing different types of medications. We deliver our courses at our Frankston offices.
