Many seniors encounter problems with their medications because they do not follow directions consistently. If you are a caregiver for an elderly client, you can be a great help by ensuring that the client takes his medications routinely and as ordered. To do this successfully, you need to be able to understand the prescription on the container or the instructions on the package for over-the-counter drugs. This course will cover the parts of a prescription or instruction to help you be prepared to assist your client with medications.
After this lesson the learner will understand the following medication instructions/prescriptions: drug name, dosage, frequency of administration, route of administration, indication and references.
