Medication Purpose Form
This form is a resource to support NDIS providers to provide person-centred support to people with a disability. This resource may be useful for medical practitioners to support NDIS providers to clarify what the purpose of the medication being prescribed is. NDIS providers have obligations under the NDIS Act 2013 and Rules to ensure that people with disability who are administered medication for the primary purpose of influencing their behaviour are further supported with positive behaviour support strategies. This form can also assist in keeping a record of the medications the participant has been prescribed and reduce the risk of medication interactions. As such, this form assists in ensuring NDIS providers are supporting NDIS participants safely and appropriately when medication is prescribed.
