Thanks for adding your analogy, Marnie!
Well, this conversation has been a good one for me because up to date I hadn't had the opportunity to hear many other view points. It has broadened my opinions and my regard to the broader scope.
I am still intrigued by the question of malpractice. Now that our prescriptive rights are more inclusive, how will this affect our liability as far as 'standard of care'? All doctors have a PARQ conversation with patients regarding treatment, and now that we are legally able to prescribe a greater number of medications that are considered 'standard', will we be held to do so? Perhaps this is a moot point, since we have had the ability to prescribe standard antibiotics for quite some time now and I am unsure how often it has been an issue of liability.
