Pharmacology and prescribing

Marian Hunter, Deborah DAVIS

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapter

Abstract

In this chapter, the scope of midwifery practice is discussed with respect to independent prescribing. The authors assume that readers have current pharmacology knowledge and a comprehensive knowledge of normal and complicated childbirth. The discussion in this chapter is limited to pharmaceutical medicines and does not cover the use of complementary or non-pharmaceutical therapies. The authors acknowledge that prescription of medicines is always evolving according to evidence, availability of pharmaceuticals and cost. Midwife prescribers have an obligation to maintain a current knowledge of the safety of medicines in pregnancy and lactation, and of preferred pharmaceuticals for particular conditions.
