Question and answer
Describe how ethical issues that may arise over the use of medication can be addressed
Vegetarians won't take capsules as they contain gelatin so therefore drug companies should produce an alternative and not be so hell bent on making money. [ GPs should also be aware which medications are in capsule form as at the moment only a very small percentage even know. Think of refusal to take life saving meds ; people who want to die;people who cry when you try to give meds; people who
become angry thinking your trying to poison them ( especially prevelent with dementia) how would you deal with the above? you would follow organsational P&P on how to deal with differing situations, you would work within your level of organsation, seek guidance from senior, inform care managment /GP I once contacted out of hours GP as a service user refused her drugs the whole day, he said unless they are life -saving meds most people have a build up of medication in their systems and it would not harm them . But you have covered yourself following procedures. Remember to write about recording and reporting of any issues around meds ]
