The Goal

Need for Program

The sheer amount of new evidence relating to medicines today can make it difficult for all prescribers to adequately stay informed. As nurse practitioners are authorised to prescribe a wide range of medicines, they must undertake additional CPD on prescribing and administration. Therapeutic decisions must be based on advanced assessment and, evaluation of the patient circumstances, consideration of concurrent therapies, and should also maximize 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:

1
Clinical decision making relating to medicines will reflect knowledge of conflict of interest
2
Adverse effects of medicines including unwanted side effects will be prevented, identified and reduced
3
Patients in your care will have their medicines reviewed and correctly de-prescribed when considered appropriate
4
Medicines will be prescribed and care delivered within the Australian legal framework
