Non Medical Prescribing Study Days
LSBU organises two Non-Medical Prescribing Study Days each year, inviting a variety of speakers to cover topics relevant to you and your career.
London South Bank University's two Non-Medical Prescribing Study Days take place in October and March. The speakers we invite are from different backgrounds with our aim being that the subjects they cover are relevant, engaging and interesting and that they can benefit you in your careers. Principles and standards in prescribing are applicable across the board, whatever your professional and clinical background.
We also welcome ideas of topics you would like to hear about so if you do have any ideas, please contact us.
Attendance at this event may also count towards your professional portfolio.
