"Over 90 percent of people with mental health problems take medication. Nurses now have the authority to prescribe this medication should they so wish. However, all nurses have a duty of care to administer medication safely. The first section of this book provides a framework for this discussion by integrating the histories of psychopharmacology, mental health nursing and medication legislation. This provides the background for the second section of the book whereby prescribing decisions in schizophrenia, depression, anxiety and insomnia, are discussed."--BOOK JACKET.

The foundations of good prescribing are quality engagement with trusted healthcare staff, access to knowledgeable and skilled personnel, and full involvement in decisions about care. Beginning with a discussion of how prescribing practices have evolved, this book then proceeds to outline how non-medical prescribing is now implemented from the perspectives of nurses, pharmacists and allied health professionals. It explores the impact on practice, and integrates the views and experiences of patients and service users, as individuals assume responsibility for their own health and select from a range of treatment options. The findings reported in this book describe the challenges posed by policy initiatives, the implications they have for healthcare personnel, and highlight areas in which further organisational change is required before the full impact of non-medical prescribing will be felt.

The variety and number of non-medical practitioners identified for prescribing activity is growing rapidly. Across the country, universities have validated prescribing programmes designed for generic health care practice with a distance-learning component. Towards Prescribing Practice offers readers a comprehensive guide to the principles and practice of prescribing. The subject matter relates to the government content standards for study programmes and takes its cue from recent research in prescribing and patient care in practice. This book embraces the perennial core principles of prescribing practice, management and leadership. Content is organised to facilitate progressive learning, with space allocated in each chapter to practice application through discussion and exercises. The early inclusion of a section on patient-centred planning and concordance enables the reader to assimilate new knowledge within an individualised care approach. The final three chapters are written from different clinical perspectives: mental health, palliative care and emergency care, providing assistance to specific areas of prescribing practice.
