The aim of this literature review is to identify and critique literature relating to current policy, guidelines and practice of non-regulated caregivers in relation to medication while they are working with clients in their own homes. The scope of this review comprises medication administration and medication support, which includes medication prompting and assisting the client to take their medication. Out of scope in this review is medication management. The review draws on relevant Aotearoa New Zealand statutes, standards and practice guidelines related to medication support and administration, District Health Board (DHB) policies, and education and training recommended and/ or available to Home Support Workers (HSWs). Relevant published research and international guidelines are also included.
