Event Overview


Hear first hand from the multi-disciplinary project team and experts who developed the Designated Prescribing Practitioner Competency Framework, and collaborate on implementation at our launch workshop. 

We’ll soon be publishing a Competency Framework for Designated Prescribing Practitioners (DPP), a sister document to our Competency Framework for all prescribers. Put together with the support of multi-disciplinary experts, this framework implements changes to regulatory standards in 2019 which mean that experienced non-medical prescribers of any professional background can become responsible for a trainee prescriber’s period of learning in practice. 

 

Why attend? 

By attending this event you will:

  • Understand how the competency framework helps universities running NMP courses re-accredit against 2019 regulatory standards, and what you need to do to comply
  • Hear about the DPP framework and the story of its development
  • Participate in a collaborative workshop to explore different approaches to implementation
  • Hear about how others are planning to use the framework 
  • Ask questions and hear answers from multi-disciplinary experts involved in it’s development 



 

     



Speakers include:
 

  • Damian Day, Head of Education, GPhC
  • Adele Mott, Lead Pharmacist, GI Services, UCLH
  • Chris Bell, Nursing and Midwifery Council


Who should attend?

This event is for you if you’re: 

  • Running or teaching on a non-medical prescribing programme and looking to include DPPs in the future
  • Working in an NHS Trust or Health board looking after the non-medical prescribers, their training and trainers and thinking of using DPPs
  • A pharmacist, nurse or other allied health practitioner non-medical prescriber who might become a DP

The development of the DPP framework has been co-funded by the RPS and a grant from Health Education England
