Prescribing and patient safety

We champion safe and effective prescribing, and are proud of the role that clinical pharmacology has to play in improving patient care and safety. As part of our charitable mission, we are:

  • Promoting activities lead by clinical pharmacologists and allied healthcare professionals to improve patient care and safety related to medicines usage
  • Working together with the Medical Schools Council to develop the Prescribing Safety Assessment. The assessment allows all UK medical students to demonstrate their competencies in relation to the safe and effective use of medicines
  • Championing prescribing competency worldwide in partnership with local educators
  • Building online training tools for all NHS doctors and trainees to practice their prescribing skills
