Med Assist

ACDS has partnered with SARC to offer the online Med Assist program. SARC's medical administration program meets the criteria set out by the Creating Excellence Together (CET) Standards and is recognized by ACDS for the purposes of CET accreditation.

This 3-4 hour program provides employees with best practices and information when assisting clients with medication. The program is fully narrated and designed to meet a variety of learning styles and is intended to be one part of an organization’s medication assistance training program. Upon completion of the program, it is recommended that an employee then complete the hands-on process of assisting clients with medication under supervision. Learn more about Med Assist and how your organization can improve client safety and manage risk, by visiting SARC Learning Central.
