The table MEDICATION TO STUDENTS: ROUTINE, EMERGENCY AND OVER-THE-COUNTER PROCEDURES outlines the procedures necessary to support the administration of routine, emergency and over-the-counter medication to students. These procedures are guided by the Brisbane Catholic Education ‘Medication to Students: Routine, Emergency and Over-the-Counter’ Policy for schools in the Archdiocese. Whilst the administration of medication is the responsibility of the parent or carer with legal responsibility for the student, school staff can assist a student with medication under the carer provisions of the Health (Drugs and Poisons) Regulation (1996) where medication is given during school hours or at school activities (BCE Medication to students: Policies and Procedures, August 2011). St Flannan’s Administration of Medication Policy is guided by and supports the BCE Policy.
