31.1 Creating Medications
The first step in preparing for medication dispensing is to build your Medications Register. This is the list of medications that are available for students to take.
All of your medications need to be added to the Medicines Register before they can be administered to students. Once they are added to your Medicines Register they are then available to be allocated to students for prescription or, in the case of Over the Counter medications (OTC), they may be permitted (by parents or staff) for a student to take.
Every medications that is added to your medications register will have some basic metadata that is used to control how it functions is the medications module. These metadata components are
- Which type of medicine the medication is, and
- Which category the medication belongs to
