Course summary

INTRODUCTION

This course offers registered nurses, pharmacists and allied health professionals (physiotherapists, podiatrists, paramedics and therapeutic radiographers) an opportunity to enhance their clinical skills and practice and become an independent non-medical prescriber. This increases your potential to access career opportunities and improves the service user/patient and carer experience by offering a timely and responsive access route to treatment.

You will:

  • Be taught by a multi-professional team of independent prescribers and clinical experts
  • Build the confidence to critically evaluate and challenge prescribing practice with reference to evidence based practice, equality and diversity and clinical governance
  • Create and implement new approaches to care delivering that meets the needs of your client group

CAREER LINKS

We work with over 100 health and social care organisations so our links with industry are very strong. The successful completion of this programme enhances career opportunities for prescribing practice within all care sectors as it responds to an increased need for workforce development within the NHS.

Examples of job opportunities are increased employability within GP primary care for pharmacists and the substance misuse area of practice.
