Giving Advice re Medications

Postby PCUK Nurse Dianne » Thu Jan 10, 2013 5:37 pm

Dear Forum Users,

We are slightly concerned by information provided re dosages of medication, especially of pain medication. People should be directed in their pain medication/management primarily by their Macmillan Nurse or Primary Care person in the first instance. We suggest caution in providing doses as each individual is different and prescribing needs should account for the whole medical history of a patient. As we are aware all patients are individual and will have different care needs and co-morbidities that may affect dosing requirements.

This is just a reminder so as to protect yourselves from issues arising out of prescribing advice and in line with forum guidelines.
