This learning guide provides Direct Support Workers (DSWs) with activities they can use to revise the core skills needed to successfully participate in the unit of competency, HLTHPS006 ‘Assist clients with medication’. Completion of this unit of competency is mandatory for DSWs in Tasmania.

In this Guide the DSW will learn how to:

  • Read labels

This resource can be used by employers and training organisations to ensure DSWs are set up to succeed when enrolling in medications training. This training resource is free to download.
