Out today: Updated RPS Competency Framework for all Prescribers

The Royal Pharmaceutical Society has updated its Competency Framework for all Prescribers, which sets out what good prescribing looks like across all health professions, and includes 12 new supporting statements.

The framework is for all regulators, professional bodies, education providers, prescribing professions and patients/carers to use. It can be used by any prescriber at any point in their career, regardless of their professional background or setting and applies equally to independent prescribers, community practitioner nurse prescribers and supplementary prescribers. The framework can be used as a self-assessment tool, to inform standards and education of health professionals and by prescribing trainees to evidence they are delivering the competencies required of their role.

After a six week public consultation, the scope of the framework has been expanded, 12 new supporting statements have been included and new information sections added. 

“A common set of competencies should underpin prescribing, regardless of professional background, to enable all prescribers to practise safely and effectively.  It applies equally to independent prescribers, community practitioner nurse prescribers and supplementary prescribers.”
