Non-medical Prescribing ECHO

The new, third, term of the Non-Medical Prescribers ECHO network is now available, following our first two programmes which have included relevant practitioners and those studying in the non-medical prescribing course with the UHI.

Why Non-medical Prescribing network?

This ECHO network aims to bring together a community of practice for participants, from different clinical backgrounds, who are working towards similar goals in patient care initially within the context of palliative and supportive care with the aim of enhancing prescribing practice.

Who is it for?

The ECHO network is likely to particularly appeal to new prescribers of any discipline or those undertaking a prescribing qualification.
