Description
This book looks at the current context of CPD in this area and provides guidance for facilitation.

In this new era of healthcare, the importance of Continuing Professional Development cannot be underestimated. Non-Medical Prescribers have a responsibility to themselves, their employer and their patients to keep up-to-date with developments in this fast-moving area of healthcare.

The book is divided into three clear sections. The first looks at general principles of CPD and considers overarching and organisational issues such as clinical governance. The second section looks at specific approaches adopted by individuals/trusts to facilitate CPD, for example e-learning and how to keep up-to-date with pharmacology. The final section is a resource section which includes a number of usable documents relating to each chapter which identify further resources and include practical ideas, tools and objects.

Features:
  • Includes legal and professional frameworks
  • Tied in closely with the latest government guidelines and standards, including guidance from the NMC as well as the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain (RPSBG)
  • Includes contributions from health professionals from a variety of backgrounds
  • Suitable for non-medical prescribers, as well as their managers, practice managers and prescribing leads responsible for providing CPD
