Whilst undertaking the Independent and Supplementary Prescribing Course
at the University of Sheffield I had the valuable experience of witnessing
the prescribing of psychotropic medicines for service users’ within a very
well organised, competent and compassionate intensive home treatment
team based in Rotherham South Yorkshire. This article is a reflective
account using a case study that illuminated to me many of the issues
involved in the decision-making toward the prescribing of drugs. The
reflection also includes a commentary on some of the issues the
prescribing nurse must be able work with if they are to competently and
safely adopt prescriptive authority to their role.
