You see another nurse practitioner prescribing for her husband, who is not a patient of the nurse practitioner. The prescription is for a narcotic. You can’t decide whether or not to report the incident.
Give examples. For example, say it was Dilaudid (hydromorphone) tablets. Talk about the drug’s effects on the patient (kinetics & dynamics briefly) and use the highest-level pharmacological information since you are doing advanced pharmacology. Talk about the Ethical, Moral & Legal aspects of this error & how you will rectify the issue. Talk about the long term consequences of opioid prescriptions. Give information as short paragraphs, not big blobs.
Use peer-reviewed scholarly reference articles, provider/clinician based, not patient-based, from peer-reviewed, current US-based journals. Use of non-scholarly references, especially patient-based, is absolutely not acceptable at postgraduate, clinician level education.
