This course is a 60-credit module which is open to registered pharmacists with at least two years post-registration experience in a clinical, patient-facing role.
The course leader and admissions tutor for this course is Shabana Chaudary, if you have any queries, please contact them via e-mail email@example.com
Upon successful completion of the 40-credit module, you will be awarded the Practice Certificate in Independent Prescribing from the University of Wolverhampton. Your name will then be forwarded to the Registrar of the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC), and you will be eligible to apply for annotation on the GPhC Register as an Independent Prescriber. This entitles you, with the support of your employer (unless self-employed), to practice as a Supplementary or Independent Prescriber.
This 60-credit module includes a 20-credit module in Enhanced Clinical skills, to give you additional confidence and expertise in managing your patients. Successful completion of both modules will lead to the additional award of the Postgraduate Certificate in Prescribing Studies, which will provide evidence to employing organisations of your ability to practice (including prescribing) at an advanced level in your chosen therapeutic area.
