The second edition of Independent and Supplementary Prescribing builds on the success of this classic text by providing a unique resource for prescribing and medicines management for both new and experienced prescribers. This is an essential resource for anyone undertaking the non-medical prescribing programme.

The book explores a number of key areas for prescribers, including the ethical and legal issues surrounding prescribing, prescribing within a public health context, evidence-based prescribing, basic pharmacology, medication safety, monitoring skills and drug calculations. Each chapter has been updated for the second edition and an additional chapter Minimizing the risk of prescribing error has been added.

Written by a group of multi-professional authors working at all stages of the medication management process, this book will be essential reading for all nurses, midwives, pharmacists and allied health professionals qualified to prescribe as independent and/or supplementary prescribers.

Molly Courtenay is Professor, Division of Health and Social Care, Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, Surrey University, UK.

Matt Griffiths is visiting Professor of Prescribing and Medicines Management at the University of the West of England, Bristol, UK.
