Summary

A Structured Administration and Supply Arrangement (SASA) is a written direction of the WA Country Health Service (WACHS) that authorises a midwife, under Part 6 of the Medicines and Poisons Regulations 2016, to administer or supply a medicine to any patient in specified circumstances. A SASA enables midwives to administer certain medications, for specified clinical indications in accordance with endorsed clinical guidelines, without a medical prescription or order. A SASA cannot be used for Schedule 8 medicines.
