The project brief was to implement non-medical prescribing (NMP) within a substance misuse treatment service in order to increase flexibility of resources for delivery of care. To do this effectively all prescribers needed to work together.
Problem: Doctors and Nurses had different prescribing governance structures. To improve access to services in a rural area. To maintain, develop and audit quality evidence based prescribing and improve medicines optimisation.
Assessment of problem and analysis of its causes:
Need for accessible high quality prescribing resources across a wide rural area.
