Course for NMPs and their teams

A half-day interdisciplinary course for non-medical prescribers (NMPs) and their clinical colleagues including GPs, to prepare for the roll-out or implementation of non-medical prescribing is now available, and has been accredited by the Association for Nurse Prescribing (ANP). The course is delivered locally, can be tailored to meet local needs, and has been developed in association with the Cornwall Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

The course can cover topics such as: the competencies needed by NMPs, accountability, regulatory body requirements and legal issues, governance compliance, clinical management plans, continuing professional development requirements, and developing prescribing. It is aimed at assisting teams to prepare for change and takes a whole systems approach.
