Prescription for Risk – A prescribing workshop for nurses
Patient safety is a fundamental part of delivering high quality healthcare in this country. Now, more than ever before, nurses need to be risk aware in order to ensure the delivery of safe care.
This workshop has been developed to help nurses who are working in specialist roles to increase awareness of the potential for things to go wrong and to practice safely, particularly with regards to prescribing.
By completing this workshop you will:
- Confirm the importance of putting 'safety first' for your patients
- Improve quality of care and patient safety

This will help you to:
