Nurse Prescribing

A review of nurse prescribing is being undertaken by the programme to assess the current level of prescribing by Registered Nurse Prescribers (RNP) in specialist palliative care (SPC) services and to explore the potential and possible barriers that may exist to full participation in prescribing. A discussion document was developed containing information on legislation, the current national number of RNPs in SPC, possible facilitators and barriers to full implementation and a plan to progress the review to the next stage. This document is supported by a toolkit of resources to support nurse prescribers.
