This book explores key developments in Non-medical Prescribing in the UK. Addressing the needs of countries in the European Market and beyond, which have been closely watching UK developments and would be interested in embedding or developing counterparts of their own. Featuring chapters by clinicians, leaders and practitioners in the UK Non-medical Prescribing arena, it identifies both current and potential future developments. Attention is paid to the different prescribing practices and governance within the four countries constituting the United Kingdom. Many lessons have been learned along the way and the purpose of this book is to share these lessons, together with best practice examples in connection with the implementation of nurse/health professional led patient care, implementation of patient centered practice, and governance. Designated Registered Practitioners who have completed an enhanced training now receive a professional body qualification which enables them to prescribe within their scope of practice as Non-medical Independent Prescribers and, providing that they are competent, from anywhere within the British National Formulary independently of doctors; for Nurses, this also includes most controlled drugs. The book will be of interest to policy makers and to forward-looking professionals and practitioners in the diverse European Health and Social Care market.

The foundations of good prescribing are quality engagement with trusted healthcare staff, access to knowledgeable and skilled personnel, and full involvement in decisions about care. Beginning with a discussion of how prescribing practices have evolved, this book then proceeds to outline how non-medical prescribing is now implemented from the perspectives of nurses, pharmacists and allied health professionals. It explores the impact on practice, and integrates the views and experiences of patients and service users, as individuals assume responsibility for their own health and select from a range of treatment options. The findings reported in this book describe the challenges posed by policy initiatives, the implications they have for healthcare personnel, and highlight areas in which further organisational change is required before the full impact of non-medical prescribing will be felt.

Nurse prescribing has been a political and professional hot potato for years. Now, for the first time in book form, RCN Adviser Mark Jones has brought together some of the key players to debate the issues and map out a way forward. This book is filled with the arguments and the vibrant debates, which surround this ever-controversial topic, as well as an in-depth evaluation of the experiences of nurse prescribing in practice to date, and the lessons,learned from the pilot sites. Starting with a history of the initiative to date, it moves through the key issues that govern its progress. Lively, stimulating and informative, this no-holds-barred book presents the true face of arguably the most exciting nursing initiative in recent times. KEY ISSUES DISCUSSED: Politics, how can it progress through the quagmire of the law-making process? The threat to vested interests - what do other professions think? Education, is nurse prescribing a professional necessity, or a misguided attempt to increase nurses power and influence? What knowledge base is required? Practice, what can we learn from those nurses who are prescribing now? What have the pilot sites revealed? The future, what is the way ahead for nurse prescribing? What can we learn from the experiences of nurses in the US?

This much-needed book is aimed particularly at students on a non-medical prescribing (NMP) course as well as those nurses who are studying for their community practitioner non-medical prescribing qualification as part of the specialist practice programme.
