Dementia Training Australia has released a new mobile app to assist staff involved in medication management to provide quality use of medicines for people living with dementia.


The Medication Management app is based on popular hard copy quick reference cards that were also developed by DTA.

DTA is funded by the Australian Government to provide dementia education and training across Australia.

The Medication Management app has two sections. The first provides information on the optimal use of antipsychotic medications for responsive behaviours; this includes medication management plans, monitoring, and side effects.

The second section lists medications that may adversely affect cognition to assist staff to identify these medications during medication review.

The information is presented in an easy-to-navigate format for use across all aged care environments.
