Hi, if someone self-medicates or is actively encouraged to participate in the whole process of taking their medication, depending on their ability, e.g. [ knowing when they need to repeat their prescription, requesting script from GP/being supported to order it via surgery's website/taking it to pharmacy, collecting it, knowing the time to take their meds, or getting a glass of water to take
their tablets then they are being empowered to be active in the process, not a passive recipient who has no understanding/control over a part of their life, it's about being person-centred, doing things with the individual, promoting their independence, feelings of self-worth & esteem, hopefully less chance of mistakes being made, abuse occurring An individual's right to have their dignity & privacy respected, following organisations ' Policies & Procedures, National Standards, Codes of Conduct, Essential Standards of Quality & Safety, this also relates to consent (Mental Capacity Act 2005) & the right to confidentaility (Data Protection Act.)
