“We propose to adopt the Royal Pharmaceutical Society’s Single competency framework for all prescribers as our new standards of proficiency for nurse and midwife prescribing practice….we anticipate formally adopting the Royal Pharmaceutical Society’s Single competency framework for all prescribers as our practice standards from spring 2018. Education providers may adopt these standards of proficiency as ‘early adopters’ from September 2018, and all programmes would be expected to adopt these standards of proficiency by September 2019.” NMC

“The formal publication of the new standards will be in May 2018” Anne Trotter, Assistant Director, Education and Standards, Nursing and Midwifery Council

Last year a new and updated Competency Framework to support healthcare professionals to prescribe effectively was published by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society. Through national updates, practical case studies and extended expert sessions, this conference focuses on demonstrating and improving nurse prescribing competence and practice – embedding the competency framework, and ten competency dimensions for all nurse prescribers.

This conference will enable you to:

  • Network with colleagues who are working to improve prescribing competence and practice
  • Understand the national context of your prescribing practice including the new NMC standards for prescribing practice which are due to be released in May 2018
  • Examine how to self assess, reflect and audit prescribing practice against the ten competency dimensions
  • Embed the framework into practice and demonstrate competence
  • Learn from others to improve prescribing governance and accountability
  • Move towards zero harm from prescribing errors
  • Develop strategies for improving medicines optimization
  • Improve your skills in prescribing for comorbidities
  • Improve practice in diagnostic decision making
  • Self assess and reflect on your own practice
  • Gain CPD accreditation points contributing to professional development and revalidation evidence
