Nurse independent prescriber qualification has had little overall impact on prescribing


"As none of your nurses have undertaken course, can assure you that there is plenty 'depth' complexitiy in terms of pharmacology/pharmacokinetics/safe prescribing" --- That may be your assessment, but it isn't ours. We are well aware that we are variously responsible for all actions - what I am suggesting is that we, as employers, as not willing to be liable for this. That, as partner's is our decision. Equally, we can't see a large business benefit to this - other employers may take a different view.
