Your repeat prescribing journey
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.
