Explanation: 1)When is a PSD appropriate?
PSDs are used once a patient has been assessed by a prescriber and that prescriber (doctor, dentist or independent nurse prescriber) instructs another healthcare professional in writing to supply or administer a medicine directly to that named patient or to several named patients. As a PSD is individually tailored to the needs of a single patient, it should be used in preference to a PGD wherever appropriate.
2)A medical practitioner may perform the following tasks:
examine the patient to determine the nature of the disorder or illness, and record the patient's medical information
order, perform and analyse laboratory tests, X-rays and other diagnostic images and procedures
provide overall care for patients and prescribe and administer treatments, medications and other remedial measures
aid in the prevention of diseases and disorders by advising patients on diet, exercise, hygiene and general health
prescribe and administer medication and inoculate patients to prevent infectious or contagious diseases
provide pre- and post-natal care
report births, deaths and notifiable diseases to government authorities
arrange for patients to be admitted to hospital
refer patients to other medical specialists and exchange relevant medical details.
