This conference will provide delegates with an update on implementing the new RPS Competency Framework for Designated Prescribing Practitioners. Through National updates, expert sessions and practical case studies this conference will support you to develop or expand your role as a Designated Prescribing Practitioner, and support the development of effective non medical prescribing across your service.
“Regulatory changes will enable experienced independent prescribers to work asdesignated prescribing practitioners (DPPs) for the practice element of non-medical prescribing training. This is a role traditionally held only by medical prescribers (Designated Medical Practitioners).We welcome the move to use independent prescribers in this role. It is an opportunity to draw on the expertise of different prescribing professions in the development of future non-medical prescribers and improves access to prescribing opportunities for the wider workforce.”
