Real clinical problems: Administration of medicines

Look at these real clinical problems and decide what further questions you’d ask and where you would look for information.
When you’re ready, here are our suggested answers. Do you agree? If you want to, you could talk to your tutor or a colleague about them or record them as a CPD exercise.

Additional learning

CPPE have developed an app on Medicines Safety. The quizzes on intravenous therapy and omitted doses are particularly relevant to this clinical topic.

Do an enquiry in a Medicines Information (MI) centre

Finally, if you have access to the MiCAL training package (subscription required) you may like to undertake question numbers 5, 7 and 16 in its database of example MI enquiries, which involve scenarios where the administration of a medicine is a major component of the enquiry.
