The Goal

Need for Program

Nurse Practitioners are authorised to prescribe a wide range of medicines. As a professional group, it is challenging to access quality education that addresses their needs in relation to latest updates and the myriad of changes to the evidence base, refreshing basic prescribing knowledge, and gaining new knowledge to support their individual scope of practice. Nurse Practitioners are also required to access 10 hours of advanced practice education, including prescribing, each year. The sheer amount of new evidence relating to medicines today can make it difficult for all prescribers to adequately stay informed. Therapeutic decisions must be based on advanced assessment and, evaluation of the patient circumstances, consideration of concurrent therapies, and should also maximise opportunities for deprescribing. Prescribing demands high level knowledge and skills relating to pharmacotherapeutic action including potential adverse and other side effects, drug interactions, compliance and evaluation.

Purpose of Program

The purpose of this program is to increase your advanced practice knowledge regarding prescribing and administration of medicines.

Your learning outcomes:

Clinical decision making relating to prescribing medicines will reflect the latest evidence
Adverse effects of medicines including unwanted side effects will be prevented, identified and reduced
Patients in your care will experience the highest level of health care, and the best possible outcomes
Medicines will be prescribed and care delivered within the Australian legal framework
