This important national conference provides an essential update for non medical prescribers in paediatrics and child health.

Through national updates and practical case studies delegates will hear how to develop and maintain prescribing competence. The conference will look at current issues and challenges for non medical prescribers in paediatrics and child health. The conference will include an extended session focusing on maintaining and demonstrating prescribing competence using the National Framework for Prescribing, developing confidence in prescribing practice and maintaining safety. Practical interactive sessions will focus on non medical prescribing for pain, and case studies in the Paediatric Emergency Department, Critical Care and in the Community. The conference will close with a session focusing on demonstrating improvement in patient outcomes and evaluating your prescribing practice.

“Guidelines for non medical prescribing are ever changing, and those of us working within child health need to maintain an awareness of not just generic guidelines, but those that are also relevant to neonates, children and young people... It is imperative that a paediatric non medical prescriber is aware of their scope of practice”
