The Royal Pharmaceutical Society has released an updated Competency framework for all prescribers, which has been reviewed and refreshed, in collaboration with a multi-expert group on behalf of all the prescribing professions in the UK.
“This competency framework has been developed and updated to support prescribers to expand the knowledge, skills, motives and personal traits, to continually improve their performance, and to work more safely and effectively. If acquired and maintained, the prescribing competencies in this framework will help healthcare professionals to be safe, effective prescribers who support patients to get the best outcomes from their medicines. It has been developed for multi-professional use and provides the opportunity to bring prescribing professions together to ensure consistency in the competencies required of all healthcare professionals carrying out the same role.”
A consultation is open until 7th May 2021
