Resource Overview

Calculating doses accurately and precisely is important for any prescriber. It is estimated that prescribing errors cost the NHS £2.5 billion annually, but more worryingly, it also causes significant morbidity and mortality. There is considerable emphasis on reducing errors within clinical practice and it is incumbent on the prescriber that the individual maintains skills and accuracy to support their continued prescribing. A component of this is via annual appraisal and revalidation.

We have developed this resource, composed of 10 assessment questions, to test your skills at dose calculations for parenteral therapies and have focused on topical areas that are popular amongst prescribers, such as aesthetics but also other popular parenteral treatments. The resource assesses your ability to calculate doses accurately, as well as calculate dosing schedules and reconstituting drugs for parenteral use.

On successful completion of the resource, you will be presented with a one hour CPD Certificate that can then be used as a demonstration of your ongoing CPD at appraisal and revalidation.
