Prescribing toolkit launched

A new non-medical prescribing toolkit has been launched by The University of Surrey

Preparing to prescribe

The University of Surrey has launched a toolkit to support implementation of non-medical prescribing in practice.

The ‘Preparing to prescribe’ toolkit provides resources for healthcare professionals, non-medical prescribing leads, service provider organisations, commissioners and universities.

It includes links to current guidance to support those who want to become a non-medical prescriber and enhance their knowledge of the role.

A team led by Dr Nicola Carey and Dr Karen Stenner from the school of health sciences at the University of Surrey developed the toolkit based on their experiences and input from educators, researchers and policy makers in the UK.
