Analysis of interviews to uncover the effects of nurse prescribing on the doctor-nurse relationship
The introduction of nurse prescribing has had a profound effect on how patients obtain a prescription. Yet very little has been researched about the effects of nurse prescribing on the professional relationship between nurses and doctors since its introduction. It was this lack of enquiry that led to this research study to see if this relationship has changed since the introduction of the nurse prescriber.
KEY WORDS: Nurse prescribing, professional relationship, doctor and nurse views
