The Importance of Monitoring Individuals who Require PRN
- Pro re nata (PRN) medication is administered when required, to relieve a variety of symptoms associated with various conditions.
- An individual may be able to inform you that they require PRN, or by working closely with an individual on a regular basis, you may be able to pick up on any changes in presentations associated with the requirement of PRN administration.
- You should closely monitor the individual after the PRN to ensure it is still appropriate for them. If PRN has no benefit to the individual it may be detrimental to them in the long term.
