MMI Scenario 18
It is a late Friday evening. Liam, 26, a known regular at your pharmacy has come into today looking rather distressed and not his usual calm self. He asks to speak to you in private. You continue the conversation in the consultation room, where he informs you, he has none of his Lithium tablets left and hasn’t been able to see his GP for a repeat prescription. He admits he had ‘a lot going on at the moment’ and although admits he has been careless; he requests an emergency supply to get him through the weekend. How would you handle this request? What issues do you need to explore? What are your concerns? What would you document?
