Having closely followed the evolving coronavirus situation; and taking into consideration official advice and local needs, we have decided to postpone all our face to face events until further notice. We have taken this unprecedented decision because the health and safety of our members and colleagues is paramount.
We will continue monitoring the situation over the coming weeks and decide if there is a need to postpone any future events. We hope to be able to re-schedule the postponed events later in the year if possible. In the interim, you can still access online Risk Prevention programmes through our PRISM platform and we will be scheduling regular webinars.
Tackle the challenges of your daily practice with our professional development workshops.
The Mastering workshops series provides you with skills to combat the common causes of complaints and claims, developed through our 125 years' experience of supporting members.
Our specially trained facilitators are all experienced clinicians who understand the complexities of your practice. There is a range of half-day workshops to choose from, all with 3 hours CPD and free as a benefit of membership.
Your Repeat Prescribing Journey – Reduce Your Practice Risks
Repeat prescribing is a complex journey that accounts for 75% of prescriptions issued in general practice.
With more than 20 steps from the initial decision to prescribe to the patient finally taking the medication, the opportunity for error is great. Therefore, it is no wonder that errors in repeat prescribing frequently occur.
Although it is the clinician who ultimately signs the prescription and is legally responsible for it, patients, staff and pharmacists all have an important role to play in minimising the risks involved in the process.
This three-hour workshop will help you to understand the potential for error in your own repeat prescribing process. Participants will identify areas for improvement and discuss solutions to mitigate risk.
Made a subject that could have been very dull very interesting!
Well organised and interactive session.
