General Practice Nurses play an essential role in delivering care through general practice, taking on a spectrum of different responsibilities within patient care to support the ever-increasing workload within GP surgeries, clinics and health centres. Often working autonomously, as part of a multidisciplinary team, general practice nurses assess, advise and treat patients of all different ages and backgrounds, and therefore may encounter almost every aspect of patient care during their work.

This book is specifically aimed at GP Nurses undertaking independent prescribing within the complexity of contemporary primary healthcare. It offers a complete overview for those taking on an independent nurse prescribing course as well as those nurses who have already qualified as independent prescribers.

Case studies written for the general practice setting will help nurses build on the skills and practice they have already developed as they take on the independent prescribing role, and will also be of value to more experienced or advanced nurses hoping to refresh their existing knowledge. Written by a range of specialist authors, the book also covers the theoretical knowledge and context associated with independent prescribing, enabling GP nurses to practise competently and confidently and deliver clinically effective, person-centred care.
