Explore contemporary issues and challenges related to prescribing practice in this short course designed for a wide range of professionals who are looking to meet the NMC requirements for continuing professional development in prescribing practice.
Taught by an experienced practitioner over half a day, this course focuses on different clinical, legal and professional issues depending on which session you choose to attend.
Structured as a rolling program that can be accessed in an order, these half-day courses tackle a range of subjects including pharmacology, long-term conditions, adherence, repeat prescribing, consent, prescribing for children, and more. There is also the option to create a bespoke study day according to your needs.
This course has been designed to assist you in meeting the competencies required of all Prescribers, as set out in the Royal Pharmaceutical Society's Competency Framework for all Prescribers (2016).
Each study day has been designed to facilitate practitioners in meeting their own CPD requirements through a flexible and student-centred approach to contemporary topical issues.
All sessions are delivered via Zoom. Please ensure the device you use to attend the session is compatible with Zoom.
Due to the on-going pandemic and the pressure on NHS staff, dates are subject to change as we align our CPD with health service pressures.
