Conversion course for Supplementary Prescribers
This short professional course is for physiotherapists, podiatrists and therapeutic radiographers who have already completed the Non-Medical Prescribing course and who wish to become an independent prescriber.
You will have been practising as a supplementary prescriber in the area for which you intend to prescribe independently for at least six months.
The course involves two University-based study days, followed by two days of self-directed supervised clinical practice with a Designated Medical Practitioner (DMP).
All students must be employed in a clinical environment where prescribing will benefit the service provided to the patient.
This professional qualification is essential for the development of the advanced practice framework.
Students can undertake this course as part of their advanced practice pathway.
