Admission for processing of the appeal of the General Council of Physicians against the nurse guides of indication, use and authorization of dispensing of medicines is a “mere formality” for him General Nursing Council (CGE); a step that “does not imply any positioning or recognition by the Ministry of Health”. And it is that, according to the president of the Collegiate Organization, Florentino Perez Rayathis pronouncement of the ministerial body is not significant given that “It does not mean going to the bottom of the matter nor does it affect the prescription guides”. However, the CGE continues to dismiss as “incongruous” doctors’ attempt to “torpedo” this increase in the competence of nurses.

“We continue to think about what happens when doctors try to torpedo documents on which there was a consensus in the interdisciplinary commission that has drafted the guidelines,” Pérez Raya points out in Medical Writing. Furthermore, as he points out, representatives of the Collegiate Medical Organization (OMC) itself have worked in the preparation of these guides that “contribute to streamlining the health system”in addition to “improving patient care.”

Specifically, the aforementioned guides, which were ratified through the Official State Gazette (BOE) last July, specify the competencies of Nursing professionals to dispense and authorize medications subject to prescription hypertension (HTA) and type 1 and 2 diabetes mellitus.

“We trust that follow the guides already published and in which they are working intensively, imposing the search for the common good of society over corporatist interests and conceptions of Health typical of other times”, continues the nurse president.

invasion of powers

As this newspaper has advanced, the Ministry of Health has communicated to the General Council of Physicians the start of the hearing process for the appeal to the guide for the indication, use and authorization of dispensing of medicines subject to medical prescription (burns) by Nursing. From the corporation it is understood that the writing of the guides can cause a problem of invasion of powers in the development of these by the different autonomous communities.

Tomas Cobopresident of the Cgcom, has positively valued this admission for processing and considers it “an advance to achieve an adequate wording that cannot be interpreted at any time as a violation of medical powers”.

“This should in no way be seen as a corporatist advantage but rather, quite the contrary, as a burden of responsibility derived from the skills and knowledge that the doctor takes to acquire over a minimum of 11 years and, subsequently, throughout his entire professional life”, the doctor has qualified.
