The National Nurse Prescribing Summit 2018 will take place in London on Monday 19 February 2018. Chaired by Marion Russell Medicines Management Advisor, the Summit aims to 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 as an effective Nurse Prescriber. The programme will focus on developing your skills, competence and confidence in Nurse Prescribing. Through national updates, practical case studies and a choice of 7 interactive workshops the conference aims to support you to improve both prescribing practice and patient care, and provide networking opportunities with nurses who are prescribing in your clinical specialty.

“Patients and the public often believe that nurses and midwives are able to prescribe, and many people do not want to wait to see a medical prescriber... We are consulting on changes to our prescribing standards that would enable nurses and midwives to be able to prescribe much earlier in their careers than they can at the moment. We propose that all nurses and midwives will be ‘prescribing ready’ when they register with us, so they would be able to build on their training and gain prescribing practice experience as soon as they qualify.” NMC 2017

The conference will include a choice of interactive expertly facilitated workshops focusing on: 

  • The National Prescribing Competence Framework
  • Prescribing for Co-Morbidities
  • Prescribing within nurse led clinics
  • History taking, assessment and diagnosis
  • Restarting your prescribing journey
  • Legal Issues and Risk Management Issues
  • Auditing Prescribing Practice
  • Electronic Prescribing and Nurse Prescribing
We hope to see you there but if you are unable to attend you may like to hear news from the day on Twitter by following @HCUK_Clare #NursePrescribing2018
