This important national conference, chaired by Barbara Stuttle, Chairman of the Association for Prescribers, provides an essential update for current and aspiring non medical prescribers on prescribing for pain.  Pain is a growing area of non medical prescribing and one of the most common areas, in a 2010 survey of the Association for Nurse Prescribing members 50% of members prescribed for pain (Karen Stenner, University of Surrey). This make it essential that non medical prescribers maintain the competence and skills to prescribe for pain in an effective way, working with patients to improve pain outcomes. 

Through national updates and practical case studies delegates will hear how to develop and maintain prescribing competence, and how to develop effectiveness in post qualification practice. Extended sessions developing prescribing competence and confidence, medication management, managing medication safety and preventing medication errors and overcoming the barriers to effective pain management.  Clinical case studies will share the learning from experienced pain prescribers on non medical prescribing for pain in the community, nurse prescribing for in-patient and post operative pain, pharmacist prescribing for chronic pain, physiotherapist prescribing for back pain and non medical prescribing for cancer pain and end of life care. 

100% of delegates attending last year’s event would recommend it.
