Course content

The UEA Independent prescribing course for pharmacists is specifically tailored for clinically experienced pharmacists to develop them into competent prescribers. The course is delivered by a multidisciplinary teaching team comprising of practicing clinical and prescribing pharmacists, doctors and nurses.

The course uses multiple teaching methods to aid your learning including 12 days in clinical practice under the supervision of a designated medical practitioner, 13 study days and associated pre-study day activities. The course design allows the student to adapt the teaching sessions to their own requirements.

Assessment is entirely by portfolio with the option of either recorded in practice consultations or a simulated patient consultation. Pharmacists who successfully complete this course will be eligible for the annotation of ‘Independent Prescriber’ on the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) Register of Pharmacists.
