Dose Administration Aid (DAA) Service

The DAA Service provides veterans, war widows and other eligible DVA clients with a DAA — a regularly filled compartmentalised box used to aid the administration of solid or oral medications — at no cost. The DAA is packed by the pharmacist who must comply with the guidelines and standards for pharmacists outlined by the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia.

This programme builds on DVA's Quality Use of Medicines programmes, which include the Veterans' Medicines Advice and Therapeutics Education Services (Veterans' MATES) programme, and aims to assist the veteran community to get the most out of their medicines and to reduce medication mismanagement.
