Coursework in medication administration provides the training needed to those who administer medication. ODP has a Medication Administration Training Course which has successfully provided that training. Now, a modified version of the course is available on MyODP.org.

Modified Medication Administration Training Course was designed specifically for those who administer medications in Lifesharing locations or service locations not licensed by the Department of Human Services (DHS). Under the new Chapter 6100 Regulations this course is required for all life sharing and all unlicensed settings where staff are administering medications. There are some exceptions for relatives administering.
