Medication Administration Training In Colorado
All licensed child care providers who administer medications are required to successfully complete the state approved medication administration training. This curriculum, developed and updated by a collaborative team led by Healthy Child Care Colorado is designed to help providers safely administer medications to children in their care. Topics include a medication overview; handling and storage; administration of oral and topical medications, emergency medications for severe allergic reaction and inhaled medications; and required medication authorization and documentation.
Qualistar Colorado, also a collaborative partner, maintains the database of child care providers who are current with their state approved medication training as well as the database of the approved Medication Administration RN and MD trainers.
