The Art and Science of Prescribing
Prescribing is not just about writing prescriptions, our accountability as prescribers also covers reviewing, reducing and stopping medicines and any advice we give to patients. In addition there may be occasions where we need to help protect a patient’s medicines regime when it is unusual (for example, off label or high dose) but has been proven to be the safest and most effective approach for that patient, providing they are fully informed of the risks & have chosen this option.
Here are some resources which can help:
- Benzodiazepine and Z – Drug Deprescribing Algorythm (from deprescribing.org)
- MHRA Interactive Drug Analysis Profiles
- Good for you, good for us, good for everybody: National overprescribing review report (22 September 2021)
