Non-medical prescribers (NMPS) are able to treat people who are addicted to opioids, so it is vital they know how to prescribe safely to reduce medication errors. Consultation models provide a framework, structure and diagnostic base to help NMPs identify and safely treat opioid dependence. This article looks at poor prescribing practice and how NMPs can prescribe safely by comparing available specialist addiction consultation models for adults. It also highlights which models may be useful for NMPs to incorporate into their practice.
