Posted 2 years ago
Ensuring tablets are taken on time and in the correct amounts is vital in the effective treatment of medical conditions.

In fact, many Australians are admitted to hospital each year as a result of problems associated with incorrect administration of medication, with the prevalence much higher among those aged 65 years and over. However, there are a number of ways to keep track of a patient’s medication regime. Some of the more common approaches include reminder charts, calendars, alarms or dose administration aids (DAA).
