This module is awaiting scheduled re-accreditation with the General Pharmaceutical Council in May 2017 to ensure that it is delivered to the highest possible standards and continues to meet the continuing professional development needs of pharmacists from all sectors.
The aim is for the next intake to commence in September 2017. The delivery of the re-accredited programme may differ from that advertised, with reduced contact days and more flexible study options. The updated programme of study will be published in early June. Applications for September are being accepted and any students who are offered places will be informed of the changes and final module structure once re-accreditation is complete.
The Practice Certificate in Independent Prescribing for Pharmacists is available as a stand-alone 45 credit course or it can be taken as an option in the diploma year of the MSc in Clinical Pharmacy, which is open to pharmacists from all sectors of the profession. Existing MSc/Diploma students are required to apply separately for the Practice Certificate in Independent Prescribing.
A 5 credit Supplementary Prescribing Conversion course, for those pharmacists already qualified as supplementary prescribers wishing to upgrade to independent prescribing, is also available.
Designed by expert pharmacists and clinicians, the course takes a practice-based approach to learning and assessment, and benefits from the continued input of experienced academics and practitioners from the fields of pharmacy, medicine and nursing.
