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.

"The workshops were highly informative and thought provoking. The delivery of the sessions by Medical Protection were captivating, interactive and hugely engaging."

  • Suitable for: The whole practice team – general Practitioners, nurse prescribers, practice nurses and administration staff
  • Format: Three hour workshop
  • Cost: Please call Education Services to discuss costs
  • CPD: Independently certified as conforming to accepted CPD guidelines

By attending this workshop you will:

  • gain a greater understanding of the nature and frequency of medication errors and why mistakes are made
  • appreciate the repeat prescribing systems and processes necessary to avoid patient harm
  • identify any improvements needed within your current system, by carrying out risk assessments and process mapping
  • reduce avoidable harm to your patients from medication errors, by improving your repeat prescribing process.
