Qualified Nurses, Pharmacists, and Midwives to Prescribe Pain Relievers

A U.K. regulation change will allow qualified nurses, midwives, and pharmacists to prescribe more controlled drugs aimed at reducing pain and suffering. The goal of this expansion is to improve the efficiency of care delivery so that patients can get the medication they need in a timely but safe manner. The majority of patients who will be affected by this change will be those in the emergency room, those receiving end-of-life care, and those seeking care for long-term conditions in community pain clinics.
