A new era of opportunity is emerging for advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) to increasingly address gaps in access to quality healthcare. APRNs must be prepared to practice to the full scope of their education and abilities. As more and more states pass legislation enhancing prescriptive authority and fully autonomous practice for APRNs, a comprehensive resource on prescribing practices is needed. The increasing demands of today's fast-paced healthcare environment require a new level of prescriber expertise. Knowledge about medication characteristics and effectiveness must be accompanied by an understanding of the context and process of prescribing. The Advanced Practice Registered Nurse as a Prescriber provides practicing APRNs and students with the information necessary to make fully informed, rational and ethical decisions as prescribers. This book opens with an overview of the role of the APRN prescriber and moves on to discussing practical issues such as managing difficult patient situations, special considerations when prescribing controlled substances, the influence of pharmaceutical marketing, state regulation, and legal aspects of prescribing. The book also examines barriers to prescribing, and the concluding chapter underscores key information to build cultural competence when prescribing. An evidence-based resource for all APRNs and APRN students, The Advanced Practice Registered Nurse as a Prescriber provides a comprehensive and practical resource essential for APRNs in all advanced practice roles.

Despite tremendous gains in medical knowledge, most conditions are managed, rather than cured, by medications. As a result, countless patients seek supplemental modes of care to better control their symptoms and conditions to improve their overall wellbeing. This reality spotlights the need for adjuvant medical procedures. Adjuvant medical care refers to any supportive therapy that enhances the outcome of medical measures already in place. Adjuvant care does not replace primary or traditional treatments, but instead serves as add-on care to the initial medical treatment plan prescribed by a health care provider. The addition of one or more non-prescription therapies (e.g., nutritional support, over-the-counter remedies, home care, dietary measures, supplements, etc.) to the primary medical management regimen has become increasingly popular and mainstream thanks to scientific studies that have documented favorable outcomes for many patients. The verifiable scientific merit of these additional medical options demonstrates their usefulness in the treatment of many medical conditions. The purpose of this handbook is to provide support to doctors and patients who are interested in safe and effective non-prescription and non-pharmacological medical therapies for specific conditions to minimize symptoms and optimize recovery and quality of life. • Helps doctors and patients discover additional therapies that can reduce pain, advance health outcomes, minimize complications and disability, and extend life. • Presents safe, reliable, and practical options that are available to reduce symptoms, maximize recovery, and positively augment the management of a variety of conditions. • Provides medical insight into less traditional, yet often effective, supportive options for enhancing and optimizing patient response to care. This book is a valuable resource for both doctors and patients who are committed to achieving the best possible medical outcomes through a variety of coordinated approaches.
