- Organisational and disability support worker challenges and gaps in implementing best practice medication safety and quality;
- Developing a needs analysis for the disability sector to improve medication safety and quality when supporting people with disabilities The Round Table is a key opportunity to contribute to a national needs analysis which will inform upcoming NDS resources, training and other activities for disability services.
