Please peruse the two following new policies:
- Use of Erect Plain Films in Assessing Stability of Vertebral Body Fractures in the Emergency Department
- Guide for Commencing Palliative Care Medications in the Opioid Naive patient in the Emergency Department
The second is a guide to using the iEMR powerplan prescribing for palliative patients. If your patient is being actively palliated (after discussion with your consultant) please ensure they have adequate PRNs and a NIKI infusion pump if appropriate.
