This conference focuses on demonstrating and improving prescribing competence and practice and use of the National Competency Framework for all Prescribers, and will also update delegates on the Competency Framework for Designated Prescribing Practitioners. Through national updates, practical case studies and extended expert sessions, this conference focuses on demonstrating and improving prescribing competence and practice – embedding the competency framework, and ten competency dimensions for all prescribers.

The updated Competency Framework can be used by any prescriber at any point in their career. It can also be used by regulators, education providers, professional organisations and specialist groups to inform guidance, education and advice. It outlines ten key prescribing competencies under two areas: the consultation, and prescribing governance. Within these areas, statements describe the activity or outcomes prescribers should be able to demonstrate.

NICE

The requirements of the competency framework will be the standards we consider safe and effective prescribing practice for all prescribers on our register... Prescribers on our register should refer to the competency framework and other relevant sources of information and guidance to inform their ongoing prescribing practice.
