Nurse practitioners, physician assistants and physicians have confided in me that they felt apprehension ordering respiratory medications due to an inability to stay current on pharmacology best practices and the complexity required to manage multiple conditions or symptoms at once. It can feel overwhelming. I certainly understand that we want to help our patients achieve their best outcomes. We also certainly don’t want to contribute to dire patient consequences.
I have been able to assist countless healthcare providers to overcome their prescriptive and administration fears. One particular nurse stands out in my memory. She was scared. And absolutely refused to give a prescribed medication to a patient on our unit. We went together, and both delivered the medication that the patient needed. After a “thank you” and many years later, she became a highly respected nurse practitioner with the Pulmonary Division of our institution. She never gave up and kept asking questions. She wanted to learn, and that curiosity to learn propelled her to high achievement in her specialty.
As we walk together through this essential content, I will present real world case studies to reinforce key points, whether you work in an inpatient or outpatient setting. I will talk through assessment findings and laboratory results to guide expert level pharmacology decisions. You will conclude this comprehensive respiratory medication update with all the information, the evidence and best practice guidance to feel confident with your prescriptive decision making.
