Course Overview

This module will equip allied health professionals acting within their scope of professional practice, to prescribe safely, appropriately and cost effectively as independently and supplementary prescribers. This will enhance their role within clinical practice and enable them to contribute further to the achievement of effective patient outcomes.

Please note: In your programme you may sometimes be expected to role play and engage in simulated clinical scenarios with other students, such as the practice and observation of practical skills in physical contact with other students. For some specific practices, this may necessitate modification of dress - e.g., to shorts and t-shirt. These activities will be conducted in a professional, safe, respectful and culturally sensitive way, under the supervision of academic staff, according to a defined protocol. This does not apply to Clinical Pharmacy practice modules as all of these modules are distance learning.
