Scenario for week 1 assignment: 

  • During        your lunch break at the hospital, you read a journal article on        pharmacoeconomics. You think of a couple of patients who have recently        mentioned their financial difficulties. You wonder if some of the        expensive drugs you have prescribed are sufficiently managing the        patients’ health conditions and improving their quality of life.

Write 3-page paper that addresses the following:

  • Explain      the ethical and legal implications of the scenario you selected on all      stakeholders involved, such as the prescriber, pharmacist, patient, and      patient’s family.
  • Describe      strategies to address disclosure and nondisclosure as identified in the      scenario you selected. Be sure to reference laws specific to your state.
  • Explain      two strategies that you, as an advanced practice nurse, would use to guide      your decision making in this scenario, including whether you would      disclose your error. Be sure to justify your explanation. 
  • Explain      the process of writing prescriptions, including strategies to minimize      medication errors.
