Shifting roles in medication prescribing

Written by 

Pharmacy prescribers are increasingly involved in drug administration as well as prescribing whereas clinicians are increasingly removed from the decision of how to deliver medication. This was a key finding in a recent Accelerate survey of hospital nurses, nurse prescribers, hospital pharmacists and pharmacy prescribers.

With shifting roles, a key benefit of using nurse prescribers was that incorrect or inappropriate administration of medication was more likely to be identified. From a pharmacy perspective, pharmacists are concerned whether the correct administration type e.g. infusion pump, is being used with the correct medication.
