About the Event

Join this live event where the Royal Pharmaceutical Society and Royal College of Nursing will come together to discuss the role of the DPP and the new competency framework. Delivered by some of the experts that wrote the framework, the programme will highlight practical applications and act as a forum for delegates to submit their questions to be answered by a panel of multi-professional expert speakers.

The event will enable you to: 

  • Understand how the Designated Prescribing Practitioners (DPP) competency framework can support your development.
  • Understand the expectations of the DPP when in role and what support is available to you.
  • Reflect on your own experience as an independent prescriber, and identify ways of optimising the trainee’s learning experience.
  • Discuss ways of identifying and managing trainees in difficulty.
  • Discuss when and how to escalate concerns.
  • Network with colleagues from multiple professions who are involved supporting and developing independent prescribers.

What did previous attendees say? 
"By having a wide range of skills, roles and backgrounds of everyone involved today, not only have I learnt a lot, but my perspective around the role of DPP has improved. I feel very positive about the whole event. I feel enthused at the idea of taking on the role of DPP when the opportunity arises."

"Good to meet and hear others who are in similar positions and how they are planning on fulfilling the role as DPP. I am going to make more use of the competencies. The speakers gave some great examples of excellence in practice."
