Chaired by Professor Matt Griffiths Independent Consultant Nurse, Advanced Nurse Practitioner and Visiting Professor of Prescribing and Medicines Management and Member The Association for Prescribers, this important national conference provides an essential update for current and aspiring non medical prescribers on prescribing for pain.

Pain is a growing area of non medical prescribing and one of the most common areas, in a 2010 survey of the Association for Prescribers 50% of members prescribed for pain (Karen Stenner, University of Surrey). This makes it essential that non medical prescribers maintain the competence and skills to prescribe for pain in an effective way, working with patients to improve pain outcomes.

100% of delegates attending last year’s event would recommend it.
