Patient medications: What you need to know


This webinar will provide an overview of common patient medications that out-of-hospital clinicians may come across in their practice. The session covers medication scheduling, and details common medications and high-risk medications for paediatric patients.

Learning objectives:

  • Identify common prescription medications
  • Identify important drug interactions
  • Understand the implications of low dose drug consumption in children
  • Identify information sources regarding pharmaceuticals

This webinar is specifically targeted towards those working in low acuity and patient transport, but more experienced clinicians may find this a useful refresher.
