Content

This multi-professional programme combines the learning outcomes set by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC). 

These learning outcomes are appropriated to the individual learner's professions and proposed prescribing area ensuring that, on successful completion, the learners have undertaken an educational preparation which affords them the necessary skills and knowledge to practice as safe competent and autonomous prescribers. 

A more detailed view of the learning outcomes and course content is seen within the module specifications below:

Entry Requirements

You must fulfil current entry requirements set by your regulatory body in relation to prescribing practice.

Important: Please ensure that you read the How to Apply notes section below before you apply online for this course.

Introduction

In April 2015, UWE Bristol, working in partnership with the University of Bath (UoB), were awarded the contract from Health Education England South West to deliver one multi-professional independent and supplementary prescribing (NMP) programme across the entire South West health community. 

Successful completion of this programme requires learners to successfully pass the module, Independent and/or Supplementary Prescribing and will award successful candidates 40 Credit Accumulation and Transfer Scheme (CATS) points. 

To comply with regulator entry requirements, the Independent and/or Supplementary Prescribing programme for Pharmacists and Paramedics is offered at level 7 (LM - Masters Level).

Nurses, midwives, physiotherapists, dietitians, radiographers, chiropodists may enrol on either level 7 (LM) or level 6 (L3 - Degree Level).  

After successful completion of the independent prescribing module, there are opportunities for those wishing to continue with multi-professional education such as Physical Assessment and Clinical Reasoning and Pathophysiology and Diagnostic Reasoning for Advancing Practice.

Key Facts

Important: Please ensure that you read the How to Apply notes section below before you apply online for this course. Additional forms to download can be found in the How to Apply section below.

Learning and Teaching

The Independent and/or Supplementary Prescribing programme offers many opportunities for all professions to learn with and from each other both in the academic and practice settings. It is also recognised that nurses, AHPs and pharmacists have different pathways to registration, and develop different skills, experiences and competencies in practice before joining the prescribing programme.

As a result, each professional group is supported to develop different skills and knowledge to meet their profession-specific needs required before legal annotation as an independent and/or supplementary prescriber. 

For nurses and AHPs, this may involve a greater focus on pharmacology principles, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, drug interactions, disease management and therapeutic decision making. 

For pharmacists, this may mean a greater emphasis on clinical examination, assessment skills, and communication and consultation skills. 

Thus, the well evaluated programme structure is borne from an understanding of the commonalities and of the uniqueness of the different professional groups whilst ensuring that all of the indicative content required by the regulatory bodies has been covered either face to face or within directed learning activities.

Content

This multi-professional programme combines the learning outcomes set by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC). 

These learning outcomes are appropriated to the individual learner's professions and proposed prescribing area ensuring that, on successful completion, the learners have undertaken an educational preparation which affords them the necessary skills and knowledge to practice as safe competent and autonomous prescribers. 

A more detailed view of the learning outcomes and course content is seen within the module specifications below:

Entry Requirements

You must fulfil current entry requirements set by your regulatory body in relation to prescribing practice.

Important: Please ensure that you read the How to Apply notes section below before you apply online for this course.

Introduction

In April 2015, UWE Bristol, working in partnership with the University of Bath (UoB), were awarded the contract from Health Education England South West to deliver one multi-professional independent and supplementary prescribing (NMP) programme across the entire South West health community. 

Successful completion of this programme requires learners to successfully pass the module, Independent and/or Supplementary Prescribing and will award successful candidates 40 Credit Accumulation and Transfer Scheme (CATS) points. 

To comply with regulator entry requirements, the Independent and/or Supplementary Prescribing programme for Pharmacists and Paramedics is offered at level 7 (LM - Masters Level).

Nurses, midwives, physiotherapists, dietitians, radiographers, chiropodists may enrol on either level 7 (LM) or level 6 (L3 - Degree Level).  

After successful completion of the independent prescribing module, there are opportunities for those wishing to continue with multi-professional education such as Physical Assessment and Clinical Reasoning and Pathophysiology and Diagnostic Reasoning for Advancing Practice.

Key Facts

Important: Please ensure that you read the How to Apply notes section below before you apply online for this course. Additional forms to download can be found in the How to Apply section below.

Learning and Teaching

The Independent and/or Supplementary Prescribing programme offers many opportunities for all professions to learn with and from each other both in the academic and practice settings. It is also recognised that nurses, AHPs and pharmacists have different pathways to registration, and develop different skills, experiences and competencies in practice before joining the prescribing programme.

As a result, each professional group is supported to develop different skills and knowledge to meet their profession-specific needs required before legal annotation as an independent and/or supplementary prescriber. 

For nurses and AHPs, this may involve a greater focus on pharmacology principles, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, drug interactions, disease management and therapeutic decision making. 

For pharmacists, this may mean a greater emphasis on clinical examination, assessment skills, and communication and consultation skills. 

Thus, the well evaluated programme structure is borne from an understanding of the commonalities and of the uniqueness of the different professional groups whilst ensuring that all of the indicative content required by the regulatory bodies has been covered either face to face or within directed learning activities.
