Project Description

The Developing the Role of a Prescription Clerk three-hour web workshop is aimed at practice managers, receptionists and administrative staff with background knowledge and experience of Medicines Management within General Practice.

The web workshop aims to further expand and develop the skills of those members of non-clinical staff who wish to take a lead in this area within the practice and undertake the role of a ‘prescription clerk’. The workshop focuses on the areas of compliance with medicines and medicines waste and offers the learner the practical opportunity to practice the application of knowledge that they have developed in these areas. After undertaking the training, learners will have an increased awareness of the process of repeat prescribing, the monitoring requirements for some common medicines and will be able to discuss the problems encountered when prescribing antibiotics.

This web workshop will also provide them with the opportunity to gain practical skills in identifying therapeutic duplication, over and underuse of medicines and problems encountered with discharge prescriptions. Furthermore, learners will be given time to discuss some of the common problems that they regularly experience, to develop their customer care and audit skills, to network with their peers and to develop action plans that can be implemented in their workplaces to develop the role of a ‘Prescription Clerk’.
