You will learn about medication types and orders. This includes the instructions often found in medication orders and what they mean. You will also learn how to recognize a medication order that requires judgement and detect when information is missing or incorrect.

Assisting with medications must be specifically part of your job description and within your scope of practice in your province. Provincial or territorial legislation, your organization’s policies and procedures, and your training and education will determine your role in assisting with medications (Sorrentino et al., 2018 ).
