Non Medical Prescribing Study DaysLSBU 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 Non-Medical Prescribing Study Days generally takes place in March each year. 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.
A certificate of attendance is provided and may count towards your professional portfolio.
The next event is scheduled to take place in March 2021 and will be delivered virtually due to Covid-19 and following on the success of our most recent study day on 17 November where we were joined by almost 450 attendees from across the UK & worldwide. We will announce the date soon & this will be found on our What’s On pages.
