Medication Decision Tool: Authority

This principle provides information about when an order is required and what to look for in an order.

Ask yourself:

  • Does this medication practice require an order?
    • Is a controlled act involved?
    • Does other legislation impact performing this in my workplace setting?
  • Is the order clear, complete and appropriate? To help you answer this, use this decision tree. 
  • Are there any workplace policies about the medication practice that I need to consider?
