CPD for Independent Prescribers

For HCP's with a qualification in non-medical prescribing

As an independent prescriber you play an important role to provide patients with quicker and more efficient access to medicines. This forms part of the National Health Service modernisation agenda as recommended in the Crown Report published in 1999 (Review of Prescribing Supply and Administration of Medicines).
For further information visit: Improving Patients’ Access to Medicines.

It is estimated that there are over 50,000 healthcare professionals with Independent prescribing qualification in the UK and this number continues to grow. With health professionals now required to undertake revalidation, it is important that Independent Prescribers (IPs) demonstrate that they have remained up to date. There are numerous aspects to revalidation which includes demonstrating the use of the IP qualification within the individual’s clinical practice, issues such as clinical governance but also demonstrable CPD.

Our Independent Prescriber CPD section lists all of our modules that relate to Independent prescribers. Please contact us if you are interested in a subject you would like us to cover
