The Non-Medical Prescribing - Practice Certificate in Independent Prescribing course from University of Lincoln is designed to provide the main theoretical perspectives associated with evidence-based therapeutics, the consultation process, including concordance and the legal, ethical and professional issues associated with the prescribing role.
