Medicine management and stroke prevention will be at the centre of a conference this month for non-medical healthcare professionals in the north-east who have prescribing responsibilities.

More than 60 nurses, pharmacists and allied health professionals have already signed up to attend the fifth Non-Medical Prescribing Conference on Wednesday, September 24.

Funded by NHS Grampian and facilitated in collaboration with Robert Gordon University (RGU), the free conference will provide learning and networking opportunities for all non-medical prescribers within Grampian.

The event, entitled “Assessment to Prescribing: Cradle to Grave,” will be held in RGU’s Faculty of Health and Social Care from 9.30am to 4pm at the university’s Garthdee campus.

The conference will offer Continuous Professional Development opportunities for non-medical prescribers in NHS Grampian. Delegates will also attend a series of presentations and workshops delivered by experts from academic and clinical backgrounds.

Linda Harper, associate senior lecturer at RGU, is one of the main forces behind the conference. The event will be opened by Professor Ian Murray, RGU’s Head of School of Nursing and Midwifery.
