Schools can prevent this by drug testing their students. If they drug test them, they can prevent safety issues, show that they care about their students, and prevent unfair situations. Drug testing should be done in schools because it keeps the athletes safe, it prevents unfair situations, and teaches life lessons. Drug testing keeping student athletes keeps students safe, because it shows that the school cares about them, and if they care about sports, they should be ready for a drug test. Studies on performance enhancers, like steroids, etc., show that after a while of using the drug, negative effects on long term health come into play (Pro & Con…).
The first reason a child should be treated with medication is to control inattentiveness. In a book called Attention Deficit Disorders: The Unfocused Mind in Children and Adults by Thomas Brown. “Fact: ADHD looks very much like a inattention problem, but it isn’t. It’s essentially a chemical problem in the management part of the brain” (Brown 1). Inattention is the main mental gap
Knowledge and assessment skills are required to improve the patient safety (4, 17-19). Clinical pharmacist can play an important role in nurse training as an effective method to reduce food-drug interactions in hospitals (18). However, we found that patients who instructed by nurses were also at high risk for potential food-drug interactions. It means that they do not pay enough attention to nurse recommendation. But they should know that communicating with physicians and pharmaceutical consultants seems to be an effective ways to preventing food-drug interaction interactions (19).
Physicians in the US are given the autonomy to prescribe to patients without restriction of drug indication as long as the prescribe drug is given to the patient to help with their ailment in good faith. Physicians give the prescription to the patient to get filled in the pharmacy. The retail pharmacist does not have instant access to their medical records to verify the indication. The pharmacist can verify the drug and the intent of the phycisian. Once confirmed, the pharmacist can fill the prescription regardless of efficacy of the drug on the patient.
If we need to use drugs that are prescribed by the doctor, we should use them, how they are supposed to be used. Don’t be a zero, be a DARE hero to me means that we need to do something about people taking drugs and be a number instead of people being a zero and not doing anything. Marijuana, meth, heroin, and inhalants can all cause death or medical issues. We learned in the role-playing that our friends can make us do things we don’t want to do. That is called personal or peer pressure.
“Many of the cognitive enhancement drugs serve to increase focus and concentration, but ‘letting your mind wander’ is very often an important part of the creative process.”(Cascio) Cognitive enhancement drugs are brain or memory drugs that are said to increase memory retention, focus, and improve your attention span temporarily. Some college campuses are debating whether the students’ recreational use of cognitive enhancement drugs such as Adderall or Ritalin, typically prescription-only drugs used by people with ADHD, should be considered as a method of cheating. Cognitive enhancements should be considered as a method of cheating on campus because the fact that it is prescription-only drug used to treat ADHD, the negative effects it can have on frequent users, and it really doesn’t benefit someone in the long run. Typically, cognitive enhancement drugs like Adderall and Ritalin are only available through prescription for those students who have been diagnosed with ADHD, the other percentage of students who who don 't have ADHD purchase these drugs from those students at street prices. There are several reasons with students buying prescription-only drugs that were not prescribed for them buy a doctor.
a. The National Institute of Drug Abuse states what legal and illegal drugs make up opioids. It also states that legally prescribed opioids are generally safe when taken for a short amount of time and are prescribed by a doctor. It described that opioids can be misused by being taken in a different way, in larger quantities or without a doctor’s prescription. Also talks about the drug that can reverse an opioid overdose if given right away, which is naloxone (Abuse).
“Recently, public health officials in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom have issued warnings about previously known but undisclosed risks associated with the stimulant medications used to treat ADHD” (p.3). Lehrman shown concern about drug usage in the treatment of ADHD. But there are other forms and ways of treatment for ADHD such as, creating routines, avoiding distractions, limit choices, discipline effectively, and help your children discover a talent. The author said that screenings harm children then introduces a whole new sub-topic on ADHD screening. He contradicts himself when introducing this section, although the information presents is factual it is only geared to one side.
Through the program, I learned that having critical thinking skills and precision are essential components of becoming pharmacists. For instance, the program was stimulating as I discovered that the most important thing a pharmacist does is to check if there are any harmful interactions between medications. It fascinates me that such a little pill can create an enormous difference in a person 's life. I take medications, but I don 't know what happens to it after I eat it. I hope to go to university to learn more about how medications are produced and how they work to make us feel better.
Developing relationships with counsellors, safeguarding team, teachers, parents and students is fundamental. According to me, those interventions in school are essential because they reduce the stigmatisation and the fear, break the taboo about mental illnesses by highlighting the hopeful message that those are medically treatable. Changing attitudes and decreasing the stigma associated with adolescents mental disorders is a goal to achieve in schools. Through my experience, I was shocked to have been told 'If you do have difficulties with that student, it is because he is on medication.' or 'well, that kid is on medication, so do not lose your time with her' after asking for advices on how to deal with SEMH pupils.
