This conference focuses on demonstrating and improving nurse prescribing competence and practice and use of the National Competency Framework for all Prescribers, and will also update delegates on the December 2019 Competency Framework for Designated Prescribing Practitioners.

"The requirements of the competency framework will be the standards we consider safe and effective prescribing practice for all prescribers on our register... Prescribers on our register should refer to the competency framework and other relevant sources of information and guidance to inform their ongoing prescribing practice.”

NMC 2019

The conference will also examine the use of the new Competency Framework for Designated Prescribing Practitioners which was published in December 2019

“From early 2019 regulatory changes will enable experienced independent prescribers to work as designated 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...We are leading on the development of a competency framework for those taking on this role which will help programme providers and DPPs in ensuring training in practice is supported." 

RPS 2019

Through national updates, practical case studies and extended expert sessions, this conference focuses on demonstrating and improving prescribing competence and practice – embedding the competency framework, and ten competency dimensions for all prescribers.

This conference will enable you to:

  • Network with colleagues who are working to improve prescribing competence and practice
  • Understand the national context of your prescribing practice
  • Examine how to self assess, reflect and audit prescribing practice against the ten competency dimensions
  • Embed the framework into practice and demonstrate competence
  • Demonstrate your skills in non medical prescribing practice
  • Understand limits of competence
  • Reflect on the new Competency Framework for Designated Prescribing Practitioners
  • Develop your skills as a Non Medical DPP
  • Learn from others to improve prescribing governance and accountability
  • Understand how to demonstrate prescribing proficiency
  • Self assess and reflect on your own practice
