Non Medical Prescribing in Cancer Care

Friday 3 Dec 2021


Follow the conference on Twitter #NMPCancer

This conference focuses on non-medical prescribing in cancer care. Through national updates and practical case studies the conference will demonstrate how the effective use of non-medical prescribing in cancer care can improve patient care, experience and outcomes.

The conference will focus on developing competence and confidence in non-medical prescribing in cancer care, including using the National Competency Framework for all Prescribers. Case study sessions will demonstrate how prescribing practice can improve care for people with cancer and will focus on maintaining and demonstrating prescribing competence, prescribing for pain management,  chemotherapy prescribing, immunotherapy induced side effects and how to manage them,  prescribing for co-morbidity and the importance of holistic assessment, prescribing for symptom control, and prescribing in end life care including controlled drugs.

“From March to September this year, over one million people in England were referred urgently with suspected cancer,
90% of whom were seen within two weeks, and over 290,000 cancer treatments were carried out.
This is testament to your leadership and teamwork.”
