​During the module you will develop the skills required to undertake a comprehensive and safe consultation, exploring theory and practical applications of knowledge to prescribing practice.

The principles of pharmacology will be developed and applied to clinical situations through the development of a Competency portfolio linked Royal Pharmaceutical Society Framework for Prescribers (2016). Consideration will be given to differential diagnoses, diagnostic tools utilised in practice and the safety netting of all prescribing decisions. Theories and methods underpinning clinical reasoning and decision-making in healthcare, advanced communication strategies, legal and ethical issues of advanced assessment and evidence based practice will be explored within the module.

Teaching approaches are varied, using an active-blended learning approach and include lectures, interactive group work, online learning activities, enquiry based learning. You will have access to tutor support throughout the module. Students will have 12 face-to-face taught days at the University, with online activity days and the completion of a competency portfolio over an 18 week period.

The assessment strategies in this programme offer students the opportunity, through critical reflection, evaluation and synthesis to review their personal learning, development and practice in relation to prescribing.
