RPS releases Designated Prescribing Practitioner competency framework

The RPS has released A Competency Framework for Designated Prescribing Practitioners following regulatory changes in 2019, enabling experienced non-medical prescribers to become responsible for a trainee prescriber's period of learning in practice in a similar way to Designated Medical Practitioners (DMP).

“This new framework will help Universities running independent prescribing programmes, NHS trusts and boards with independent prescribers, trainee independent prescribers and experienced independent prescribers to understand the expectations for a DPP through standardised competency descriptors.”

Professor Angela Alexander MBE, Chair of the Working Party for the RPS DPP Competency Framework will be chairing and speaking at the Developing your Role as a Designated Prescribing Practitioner national conference taking place on Monday 16 March 2020 in London.
