    Abstract

    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.
