“The independent Cancer Taskforce set an ambitious task for the NHS: to make significant progress in reducing preventable cancers, increasing cancer survival and improving patient experience and quality of life by 2020.” NHS England 

This conference focuses on Non Medical Prescribing in Cancer Care. Through national updates and practical case studies the conference will demonstrate how the effective use of non medical prescribing in cancer care can improve patient care, experience and outcomes.

The conference will focus on developing competence and confidence in non medical prescribing in cancer care, including using the new National Competency Framework for all Prescribers. Sessions will focus on chemotherapy prescribing, prescribing in a lung cancer, non medical prescribing for pain and symptom control, pharmacist prescribing within an oral anticancer medicine clinic, prescribing in end life care including controlled drugs, and non medical prescribing within follow up clinics and cancer survivorship services. The conference will also include a session on the development of radiographer led prescribing which has now been approved for advanced practice therapeutic radiographers.

“Independent prescribing can also enable new ways of working to improve quality towards delivering safe, effective services focussed on the patient experience. It facilitates partnership working across professional and organisational boundaries within commissioning/provider landscapes and with patients to redesign care pathways that are cost-effective and sustainable... It can enhance choice and competition, maximising the benefits for patients and the taxpayer.” Independent Prescribing by Radiographers Consultation, NHS England
