This important national conference provides an essential update for current and aspiring non medical prescribers on prescribing for wound care. Wound care is a growing area of non medical prescribing and one of the most common areas, it essential that nurse prescribers maintain the competence and skills to prescribe for wound management in an effective way, working with patients to improve wound management outcomes.

Through national updates and practical case studies including acute care, district nursing and community, pressure ulcer management, wound care, oncology pressure ulcers & malignant wounds, moisture lesions and venous eczema the conference will look at how to develop and maintain prescribing competence, and how to develop effectiveness in post qualification practice. Delegates will also explore how to apply the Competency Framework for all Prescribers to wound care. The Royal Pharmaceutical Society’s Competency Framework for all Prescribers was recently adopted as the NMC’s standards of competency for prescribing practice which will come into effect from 28 January 2019.

This conference will enable you to:

  • Network with colleagues who are working to improve non-medical prescribing practice for wound care
  • Learn from outstanding practice in prescribing dressings,  topical agents, bandages and medication
  • Reflect on national developments and best practice evidence
  • Improve the way you use the National Prescribing Competency Framework to assess and maintain competence in prescribing practice
  • Develop your skills in improving wound care outcomes
  • Promote rational prescribing by encouraging the safe, effective, appropriate and economic use of dressing therapy
  • Understand the range of wound care management prescribed and new products on the horizon
  • Identify key strategies for pressure ulcer management and reduction
  • Learn from experienced non medical prescribers and case studies in various clinical areas  Understand how to audit and self assess and reflect on your own practice
  • Gain cpd accreditation points contributing to professional development and revalidation evidence
