Medication Decision Tool
This tool is designed to help you apply the Medication practice standard. The practice standard is principle-based, which means that it uses broad statements. You will need to use critical inquiry and your knowledge, skill and judgment when making decisions about medication practices.
This tool is divided into three sections representing the principles in the Medication practice standard: authority, competence and safety.
Each principle has a set of questions for you to consider when faced with a decision about your medication practice. Answering these questions and reflecting on your practice will help you decide the best course of action. Not all questions may apply to your situation.
Click on each section to see the questions and related College resources. Click on the middle to open up the Medication practice standard.
