Feedback:
Before recommending a particular product, the nurse needs to assess the intended recipient for conditions or other medications that contraindicate the product's use. Herbal options do not need to precede pharmaceuticals, and the nurse does not necessarily need to consult with a pharmacist or pharmacy technician. The patient's understanding of the epidemiology of the common cold is not a high priority.
