The Goal

Need for Program

Nurse Practitioners are authorised to prescribe a wide range of medicines. This demands a high-level of knowledge and skills relating to pharmacotherapeutic action, including potential adverse and other side effects, drug interactions, compliance, and evaluation. Therapeutic decisions must be based on evidenced knowledge about medical conditions. Nurse Practitioners are required to access 30 hours of education per year, including 10 hours relating to their advanced practice and prescribing. The sheer amount of new evidence about medicines today makes it essential for prescribers to stay adequately informed.

Purpose of Program

The purpose of this program is for Nurse Practitioners or Advanced Practice Nurses to increase knowledge and keep up-to-date about prescribing, the administration of medicines, and professional practice.

Your learning outcomes:

1
Reflect upon interprofessional relationships, practices, and experiences to provide the best holistic care to people
2
Reflect the latest evidence in your clinical decision-making relating to prescribing medicines
3
Prescribe medicines within the Australian legal framework to prevent adverse effects and unwanted side effects
4
Evaluate possible changes to your current prescribing practice and understand how to overcome the barriers to achieving necessary changes
