Friday 15 May 2020

West One De Vere Conference Centre, London

For Current and Aspiring Non-Medical Prescribers
Second Annual Conference

Follow the conversation on Twitter #NMPMental

This conference will look at national developments in nurse prescribing in mental health, improving and maintaining prescribing competence and the use of the national prescribing competency framework in mental health. Extended sessions will focus on developing your skills as an effective nurse prescriber and case studies will demonstrate established practice in nurse prescribing on acute inpatient wards, for dual diagnosis, mental health crisis services, depression, dementia and delirium,  and physical health monitoring. The conference will also look at developing nurse prescribing including auditing your prescribing practice, and supporting the expansion of nurse prescribing practice in Mental Health.

“Nurse prescribing is becoming increasingly common in mental health services, changing roles for nurses and the experience of services for service users. However, there is great variation between organisations in this regard.”

D. Dobel‐Ober PhD N. Brimblecombe RN, PhD Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing 

“The number of nurse prescribers has increased over the last few years. Nurse prescribers are increasingly prescribing in a form (‘independent prescribing’) that makes them independently responsible for prescribing decisions without working to a plan laid out by a doctor. Mental health organisations are increasingly planning in a systematic way how to identify, train and ensure good practice in nurse prescribing”
