Some nurses in the LTC facility I visit once a week have asked me a question regarding patient education on prescription medications. In this facility, Speech Language Pathologists do "memory training" with residents. Part of this training is medication education where the speech language pathologist create a list of medications and the reason the resident is taking the med. The nurses feel this is "wrong" as they think the SLP are not educated in all ht meds. I dont know if this is true? They feel they are acting "beyond their scope of practice". Anyone have any thoughts on this?
