Pharmacology as part of prescribing practice

As prescribers, you are required to ‘understand the mode of action and pharmacokinetics of medicines and how these mechanisms may be altered (e.g. by age, renal impairment), and how this affects treatment decisions’ (NPC 2012). Non-medical prescribers are not expected to be pharmacologists and know everything about every medicine; however, they are required to understand the pharmacology of the medicines that they prescribe and the limits of their pharmacological competence and apply this knowledge within their practice (NMC 2012).
