Frequently asked questions

What are PRN Protocols?

PRN medications are prescribed to be taken as required rather than on a set schedule. With PRNs, the care provider is then required to give additional information, called protocols, to their care team when administering.

Why do I need PRN protocols in the system?

As a CQC requirement, you should give additional information to your care professionals about PRNs, including what symptoms to look out for, how this medicine is administered and what dosage can be given in a certain timeframe and more.

When should I use PRN protocols?

When your care recipient needs medicine with a PRN (pro re nata) or ‘when required’ dose you should provide PRN protocols to give all the required information to your care professionals about the PRN medicine.
