Study comparing consultations seeks nurse and pharmacist prescribers

A study that will compare the consultations and communication methods of different prescribers – nurses, pharmacists and GPs – is looking for nurse and pharmacist prescribers working in Bath, Swindon, Wiltshire, Bristol, North Somerset, Gloucestershire, Berkshire East, Berkshire West, and Devon Primary Care Trusts.

Participating prescribers will audio-record about 10 of their consultations with patients (with patients’ agreement). The research team is led by Professor Marjorie Weiss, Department of Pharmacy and Pharmacology, University of Bath.
