Medications are substances that are given in order to prevent, diagnose, cure, control or alleviate disease, or improve a person’s physical or mental wellbeing. Medications can be prescription and non-prescription and include complementary healthcare products. Medications are crucial in maintaining health, preventing illness and treating health conditions - but when used inappropriately or incorrectly, they pose a serious risk of harm. For this reason, workers employed by National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) providers must be able to competently manage medications for participants who require them.
