Medication Teaching Plan Guidelines
Patient education is an integral aspect of nursing to ensure a patient’s safety and achieve
the target therapeutic effect for specific medications (Paterick et al., 2017). Fittingly, the
brochure is medication teaching plan for the recently approved drug Rhopressa. The drug got
FDA approval for use in glaucoma treatment in December 2017. It can also be used to manage
abnormally high intraocular pressure, which can lead to glaucoma if left untreated. The
pamphlet’s intent is to assist nurses conduct a fruitful patient education session on the drug
Rhopressa. The word-choice is simple enough for nurses to use in discussions with patients.
The brochure presents essential information that the patient needs to know once a
physician prescribes Rhopressa to them. Prior to the teaching, it is crucial for the nurse to assess
the patient’s preferred learning style, the literacy level, religious beliefs, and their social support
system (Witry et al., 2017). This information is vital for a successful patient education. The
setting for teaching should be at a safe and private environment, to permit verbal communication
and technique demonstration. During the session the patient will learn about the drug and master
the correct application technique.
First educate the patient about the therapeutic effect of the medication, adverse effects,
and relevant precautions regarding Rhopressa. Thereafter, the nurse should show the suitable
application method. Emphasize on the need to handle the container appropriately, including
washing hands before use and keeping container’s tip from contacting the eye or any other
surface. Also note the need to remove contact lenses before Rhopressa administration, and steps
to take in case of a missed dose. Conclude by asking about key aspects to confirm that the patient
understands, and address any of their questions and concerns.
