"I don't believe that babies and children should be included in the performance criteria for this unit of competency. It is not supported by the POISONS ACT here in WA for AHP's to administer immunisations without doing an additional AHW Immunisation Course, this course is nationally accredited and has the prerequisite in it that students must have completed the Administer Medications unit of competency prior to completing the course. This course is also supported by the Department of Health as a prerequisite for vaccination administration. Registered Nurses also require to do additional skills and courses (Such as the SA Immunisation Course) prior to administering medication to babies. "

"In the performance evidence where the test/procedures for health assessment '•chest and abdomen' is very no specific and does not fit with 'routine health assessment' are you wanting the student to palpate ??????????? I think that if this is not detailed it should be removed. I note that skills like PoCT for HbA1c and INR and ECG were removed from Cert III but should they be included in this unit? I also note that the language has changed significantly and the unit refers to "short term conditions' or non-complicated when out greatest concerns are chronic health conditions and the ongoing monitoring, management and evaluation of them. I feel that the language needs review and needs to be more specific "

"This unit does not really distinguish between Cert III and IV skills levels for Health assessments and has long been a point of discussion in community and amongst students who have completed both qualifications. "
