Developing Your Prescribing Skills helps practitioners and all new prescribers to assess their current skills, and recognise their skills gaps. It identifies ways to meet learning needs and be accountable for prescribing, both as individuals and teams.

Using 'real life' case scenarios, it takes a practical view of the main issues facing prescribers in all walks of practice. This book encourages the reader to apply the generic prescribing skills covered in each chapter to their own practice through the use of reflective exercises with feedback from experienced prescribers, suggested areas for further study, mind maps and top tips.

Chapters offer information and advice on:

  • taking a good history
  • prioritising in polypharmacy
  • consultations and prescribing in paediatrics
  • monitoring prescribing
  • ethical decision making in prescribing
  • establishing partnerships with patients
  • influences on prescribing.

Developing Your Prescribing Skills is an invaluable resource for all new prescribers including junior doctors and GPs, and non-medical prescribers such as pharmacists, nurses and allied health professionals.
