Assessment framework for prescribing: lower limb skin tears.
Gould, Jill; Bain, Heather
Prescribing by a variety of professionals continues its progression in response to the growing demands for health care. Prescribing by nurses was initiated in the 1990s and supported by the National Prescribing Centre's 'prescribing pyramid' or seven steps or principles for good prescribing (NPC, 1999). This article explores a new prescribing consultation model (RAPID-CASE), which is composed of elements from the prescribing pyramid and the Competency Framework for all prescribers (Royal Pharmaceutical Society [RPS], 2021). The RAPID-CASE consultation model is applied to a clinical scenario to illustrate how it can guide a systematic approach to decision-making, using the example of a lower limb skin tear injury.
