Question and answer
Describe why it is important to adhere to the agreed scope of the job role
As a health care professional, you will most likely have a license, certification, and or/job description that is defined by a Practice Act and/ or scope of practice to which you are expected to adhere. [ Although many of the health care workers will have studied similar curriculum in the course of their education, a physical therapist is not a nurse, a social worker is not a speech therapist,
and a chiropractor is not a neurosurgeon. In this same light, a physical therapy aide is not a physical therapist, and a nurse's aide is not a nurse. The medical assistant in the physician's office cannot diagnose or prescribe. ]

Describe the roles and responsibilities of those involved in prescribing, dispensing and supporting use of medication
Weegy: The prescriber must be trained appropriately (may be a GP or nurse prescriber for example) and update themselves as required by any professional body that they might belong to - prescriptions should be written clearly, [ ensuring the patient understands any side effects and the reasons for the prescription be given to them and how long they should take it for. Medication should only be prescribed after careful consideration of the patient's best interests - cost, unfortunately (but realistically) may also be a factor to consider. The prescriber should have access to the most up to date version of the British National Formulary (BNF) which is the prescriber's 'bible' (there is a version for prescribing for children and an on line version). The person dispensing must also be appropriately trained, follow safe systems of work and understand the side effects of various drugs; be able to access appropriate information and understand when to access advice or further information (the dispenser may not necessarily be a trained pharmicist but should be working alongside one). By supporting medication, I'm assuming you mean how does the person administering the medication support an individual to take it? If so, this is through following care plans or support plans; staying with the person to support them to take it; using appropriate equipment (spoon etc) and a drink of water and of course reassuring communication and of course time. ] (More)

describe different forms in which medication may be presented
Weegy: Medicine in different forms / types >pills, tablets – a small round or oval mass that contains medicine and is swallowed. [ Some are ‘enteric-coated’ with a substance which only dissolve when it reaches the intestines, this ensures that the active ingredient reaches the site of action or site of absorption10 >capsules – these are gelatinous containers containing powder or tiny pellets (which are also often enteric-coated)11 >injection – the administration of a liquid, into a part such as vein or subcutaneous tissue. An injection usually brings about a quicker effect, particularly if the drug is injected directly into the bloodstream (IV – ‘intravenous’), rather than into a muscle (IM – ‘intramuscular’); injections given just under the skin are called ‘subcutaneous’ injections12 >liquids/syrups – a concentrated solution of a sugar in water, with medication dissolved in the liquid. Cough mixtures are commonly sold in liquid form; liquid medicines are particularly useful in children and the elderly, both of whom may struggle to swallow tablets or capsules13 lozenges – a medicated tablet, that is allowed to dissolve in the mouth. Throat conditions are most commonly treated with lozenges, which often have a mild anaesthetic effect to numb a sore throat14 >inhalants – a medication that is taken into the body through the nose or respiratory system, through inhalation (breathing in). Asthma medication, is available in inhaler formulations15 >creams, ointments –are semi-solid preparations, containing the medicinal substance, to be used externally. They are applied directly onto the skin or into the eyes or ears16 >suppositories – the medication is usually mixed with a suitable oil, which is solid at room temperature, and is in the form of a large “tablet shape” to be inserted ano-rectally, where the medication is rapidly absorbed. ] (More)

Describe situations where information normally considered to be confidential might need to be passed on
Weegy: If you are hired in a position of a care giver and your patient must be transfered to another's care the patient's information could be passed along to them. If someone has a court order or a subpoena for the information you may pass it on . [ In most medical situations the patient signs permission for their information to be passed along to whatever financial institution (insurance company) may need it so that the physician or hospital may get paid for services ] (More)

identify skills and approaches needed for resolving conflicts
Weegy: Try to handle conflict situations by remaining calm, ending the conflict before it escalates and remaining respectful of others, adopt an open-minded, non-judgemental approach. [ However, there are times when this may seem impossible and the following skills are required: openly discuss differences in a calm and rational manner. For example, when having heated professional discussions with colleagues: – avoid rising to challenges or suggestions that you are incorrect – ask colleagues to listen to you and respect your opinions, but also respect their opinions – if you feel you cannot resolve a conflict situation with a colleague then speak to your line manager – respect the advice of others, always be professional in your behaviour and attitude. demonstrate active listening skills – listen carefully to others, remember eye contact – acknowledge what they are saying by nodding your head – repeat a summary of what has been said to you – demonstrate empathy and understanding – seek advice, support and guidance from a manager or supervisor if you require it. You should approach conflict situations with care and try not to let your personal feelings affect your professional judgement or manner. This is essential as being able to remain calm and rational can often defuse an escalating conflict situation. ] (More)
