What will the course look like?
At St Christopher’s we understand the need to provide regular support and learning opportunities to non-medical prescribers. This supports non-medical prescribers in practice, and enables non-medical prescribers to demonstrate continuing professional development as they progress through their careers.
We are developing a new online monthly community of practice to continue to support nurses and allied health care professionals who are non-medical prescribers working in palliative and end of life care. This community of practice will support one another, and provide a space for reflection, discussion and sharing of best practice.
There will be 10 sessions over the year starting this October and running every month (excluding December and August) until September 2021. Each session will consist of a 20-30 minute presentation led by a clinical expert, followed by two case study presentations from members of the community, and time for discussion and Q&A.
The presentation will be recorded and posted on our Online Learning Platform (OLP) for the community. The OLP will also contain documents, reference materials and the case studies discussed. These can be accessed by all members of the community of practice, and therefore will be available to anyone who misses a session.
These community of practice meetings are open to all non-medical prescribers in end of life and palliative care; and also open to anyone currently undertaking or about to undertake a non-medical prescribing programme.
