This important national conference provides essential updates for nurse 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 nurse prescribing practice as well as case study sessions from specialist speakers in the areas of nurse prescribing in the management of arrhythmias, nurse 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.”

British Heart Foundation January 2022

ACPs and specialist nurses are essential for the day-to-day delivery of cardiac services and to help deliver the NHS Long Term Plan. ACPs and specialist nurses should be triaging patients, providing care across a pathway, delivering clinics, prescribing independently and undertaking appropriate extended roles… Of the 63 trusts visited during deep dives at the time of writing, specialist nurses were currently able to prescribe in just 23. In some, plans to enable nurse prescribing were in the pipeline; in others, there were no plans at all. ACPs or specialist nurses capable of prescribing should be available to provide support to clinics, ward rounds and other activities 7/7. There is also variation in the extent to which specialist nurses are being deployed to independently run HF, chest pain and arrhythmia clinics, and to carry out procedures such as cardioversions. These extended roles are encouraged… Specialist nurses/ACPs should be prescribing within their specialty to initiate and titrate medication…Specialist pharmacists and nurse prescribers should be used to support medicines optimisation at ward level or in outpatient clinics.
