Question and answer
Q: Describe how ethical issues that may arise over the use of medication can be addressed
A: 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 ]
