Nurse Prescribing Leadership Summit 2022

Friday 4 Feb 2022


Follow the conference on Twitter #NursePrescribingSummit

The 2022 Nurse Prescribing Leadership Summit, which is now in its Sixth year, will take place virtually and will bring together Nurse Prescribers to understand current issues and the national context, and to debate and discuss key issues and areas they are facing in practice. This CPD certified conference provides a unique opportunity to learn from the experiences of other nurse prescribers and develop your skills, competence and confidence in Nurse Prescribing. Through national updates, practical case studies and a choice of interactive workshops the conference will support you to improve both prescribing practice and patient care, and provide networking opportunities with nurses who are prescribing in your clinical specialty.

Extended interactive workshops will this year focus on using the 2021 Revised National Prescribing Competency Framework, Designated Prescribing Practitioners, and History Taking, Clinical Assessment and Diagnosis. New sessions to this year’s programme will focus on the role the NMP Lead, Understanding clinical pharmacology as a Nurse Prescriber, medication safety & learning from medication errors, developing a  human factors approach and there will be an extended focus on the important issue of prescribing for Co-Morbidity (including co-morbid physical and mental health conditions).

Medicines are used more than any other intervention by patients to manage their medical conditions. Both the number of medicines prescribed and the complexity of the medicines regimes that patients take are increasing. As the population ages and multiple co-morbidities become more prevalent, polypharmacy is increasingly becoming the norm for patients. This increase in complexity means that besides developing and maintaining prescribing competency for individual conditions, prescribers have the challenge of keeping up to date with new medicines as they come onto the market and being aware of the potential for interaction between medicines in patients with multiple co-morbidities”.
