Unwin R, Redman S, Bain H, MacPhee M, McElhinney E, Downer F & Paterson R (2016) Supporting practice learning time for non-medical prescribing students: managers’ views, Nursing Management, 23 (3), pp. 25-29.

Managers in healthcare services have ever-increasing demands to consider in relation to front line care, including the continuing professional education needs of qualified practitioners who are advancing their roles. One advancement is non-medical prescribing, and this article reports part of the findings from a survey undertaken in Scotland which explored managers’ views of the clinical support of staff enrolled on a non-medical prescribing programme. The article discusses how managers have an important role to play in supporting these learners in practice, and suggests all stakeholders should be aware of the pressure this adds to managers, and seek creative solutions to support the process of learning.Read More:
