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?

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.
