The ‘Return to prescribing’ course has been designed to support any registered pharmacist prescriber in England looking to rediscover their prescribing skills and get back into a prescribing role.

Over three days, pharmacists will be able to reflect on their current skills and identify actions, using excellent resources and opportunities, to address gaps in the knowledge, skills and behaviours required for effective prescribing. The course consists of a mix of individual learning, group activities and discussions, as well as sharing of best practice.

Pharmacists will have an opportunity to identify personal learning needs using the prescribing competence framework and create an action plan to address these needs, building on a library of reliable, evidence-based information sources.

The three-day course will allow pharmacists to develop skills required to work effectively with patients, recognising the key elements needed for a supportive network for prescribing practice as well as identifying opportunities for developing a prescribing role.

‘Return to prescribing’ is not only an excellent step in a pharmacist’s continuing professional development, but is also a chance to gather evidence for the RPS Faculty application, as it provides evidence for the expert professional practice cluster.

Supplementary prescribers who need to meet eligibility criteria for a conversion course will also benefit from attending.

The next available course takes place on January 21-22 and April 24 in Manchester and is funded by Health Education England, so there is no fee for attending.

More information, frequently asked questions and booking details can be found on the ‘Return to prescribing’ page on the CPPE website.
