Practical guide for independent prescribers

discussing prescription with patient

With an increasing role of independent prescribers in the healthcare model and NHS workforce, the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) have collaborated with the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) to produce a support guidance for Pharmacist, Nurse and Midwife independent prescribers.

The guidance aims to support those aspiring to become independent prescribers, providing practical guidance on overcoming challenges such as finding a designated medical practitioner (DMP) and understanding the role of independent prescribers to a greater extent. This guidance can also be used as a support tool for those training to be an independent prescriber, supporting with resources to develop and build on your competencies and knowledge as a prescriber.
