About the project

This project aims to identify and better understand the barriers and enablers to implementing prescribing interventions which can empower prescribers to enhance their development and improve patient care.

With support from ESRC Impact Acceleration funding, our research team has brought together diverse academic and external partners who represent medical education, policy-makers, and clinical practice. These partners are currently engaging with a wide community of key stakeholders, including pharmacists, doctors, nurses, patients, educational programme directors, and policy makers.

This will lead to the production of an ‘Optimising prescribing toolkit’, to provides resources for clinical practitioners to spread knowledge of best practice, and gives policy makers quick access to evidence syntheses to support policy change.
