Resource Overview

Errors in dosing form one of the leading preventable causes of drug adverse events. Admissions due to adverse events have been found to be 2-3%, and of these roughly 50% of the admissions were as a consequence of errors in prescribing. Thus, as a prescriber, it is particularly important to be knowledgeable about the drugs that one prescribes and be accurate regarding dosing. This module, composed of 10 assessment questions, assesses your ability to undertake straightforward calculations in commonly encountered clinical scenarios.

As a prescriber, one is also expected to demonstrate evidence, at appraisal and for revalidation, that one remains contemporary with the requirements of prescribing. This module enables the user to demonstrate skills in dose calculations that are an integral component of safe prescribing.

Once you've successfully completed the module - and achieved the minimum pass mark of 60% - you will be awarded with a one hour CPD Certificate, which you can print or upload to your annual CPD portfolio.
