Question and answer
describe the roles and responsibilities of those involved in prescribing, dispensing and supporting use of medication
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. ]

Weegy: Understanding medications in the nursing home is important for concerned family members. [ Even though the following review of prescribing medications in the nursing home is long and sometimes technical, it should be well worth the time and effort to read. The invisible workings of medications may expose the resident to far more risk than any other aspect of nursing home care. Historically, family members have played an important part in better drug therapy management by learning all they can about the medications their loved one is receiving and speaking out when a problem is apparent. ] (More)
