The key message here is that staff–client interaction does not occur in an institutional vacuum: contextual factors influence what staff and clients do in their encounters with one another, so need to be considered when investigating decision-making about dose. Conclusions Qualitative research asks different questions to those of outcomes studies and can give new insights into clinical practice (Fountain 2000). In this chapter 5 These types of organizational pressures were forewarned by Strang in the late 1980s (Strang 1989).
G. clinic policy). It was widely recognized, as in much prescribing, that setting the start dose was not an exact science, one doctor saying ‘It’s not quite out of a hat, you’re sort of guided by certain things, but it’s not that important’. Such inexactness left room for flexibility to accommodate clients’ expectations and to avoid dose becoming a distraction. Perceived importance of dose Staff talked about some clients having ‘fixed ideas’ of the dose they wanted. However, staff also noted the importance of not getting ‘bogged down’ by dose, otherwise subsequent keyworking sessions can dissolve into game playing.
The data are based on prescriptions and not patients. For reasons of confidentiality, pharmacists were not asked to identify patients or prescribers, and it is therefore possible that one patient may have been receiving a prescription for more than one methadone dosage form. 3 mg for the oral mixture is thus likely to be an underestimation of the mean methadone dose for those on methadone maintenance, since at least some of these patients will have been receiving methadone ampoules and oral mixture, leading to two separate entries to the dataset (one for ampoules, one for the oral mixture).
