Example text

The harmful effect is allowed if proportionally it is less than the good effect. Therefore, it is important for prescribers to review both the potential positive effects of treatment, for example symptom control, and the negative effects, for example side effects. It is also important to consider both acts of commission and omission, as a failure to prescribe can also cause harm to the patient. Beneficence This is the principle of doing good and refers to the obligation to act for the benefit of others that is set out in codes of professional conduct, for example, pharmacists' code of ethics and professional standards and guidance (Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain, 2009).

It is essential the patient understands their diagnosis, the benefit and rationale of the proposed treatment and the likelihood of its success together with the associated risks and consequences, for example side effects. Therefore, a prescriber needs to discuss these aspects with the patient. In addition, potential alternative treatments should also be discussed to allow the patient to make a comparison with the proposed plan. The prognosis if no treatment is prescribed should also be discussed.

Suspected adverse drug reactions should therefore be reported in accordance with the relevant reporting criteria. Prescribing across the interface between primary and secondary care When a patient moves between care settings, there is a risk that a ‘gap’ in care will take place. 4 Advice for prescribing unlicensed and off-label medicines (from Drug Safety Update, 2009; 2: 7, with kind permission from MHRA) Consider • Before prescribing an unlicensed medicine be satisfied that an alternative licensed medicine would not meet the patient's needs.
