Policies and Procedures


The Medication Management Policies and Procedures version 6.0 (February 2021) encompasses some significant updates from previous versions, including additional background information and definitions, as well as further procedural steps and updated terminology and references. Policies and their associated procedures come from a sound clinical basis utilising current evidence-based guidelines to provide greater understanding of their content, and also consider regulatory requirements and the Aged Care Quality Standards.  They are designed to sit within the facility’s or organisation’s clinical governance framework with the endorsement of the governing body.

Individual facilities or organisations utilising these policies and procedures do so with understanding of the content, and with the responsibility to support staff in their implementation.
