For Current and Aspiring Non-Medical Prescribers
This important national conference provides essential updates for current and aspiring non medical prescribers in cardiology and cardiovascular care. Through national updates and practical case studies you will hear from expert speakers on how to develop and maintain prescribing competence and how to develop effectiveness in post qualification practice.
The conference will include extended sessions focusing on developing your skills in non medical prescribing practice as well as case study sessions from specialist speakers in the areas of non medical prescribing in the management of arrhythmias, prescribing for heart failure and end of life care, prescribing within a rapid access chest pain clinic, prescribing in cardiac rehabilitation and cardiovascular disease. The conference will also reflect on the impact of Covid-19 and consider the impact on prescribing and medication in patients with cardiovascular disease.
“There are around 7.6 million people living with heart and circulatory diseases in the UK - an ageing and growing population and improved survival rates from heart and circulatory events could see these numbers rise still further.”
