Keeping children safe and healthy while in childcare settings is the goal of childcare providers. However, despite the best care practices, it is inevitable that children will get sick. Becoming approved to administer medication will help you to be prepared to help a child when an illness strikes.

- An overview of medication effects
- Ways to give both over-the-counter and prescription medication
- The handling, storage and disposal of medication
- Permission and instruction requirement
- Preparation & administration techniques
- Asthma, emergency care, special situations and more
