Description:
Nurse and midwife prescribing is a new and expanded role in Ireland. The first Nurse and Midwife prescribers registered with An Bord Altranais in early 2008, following years of groundwork and, ultimately, legislative and regulatory amendments in 2006 and 2007 to make this expanded role possible. Audit of nurse and midwife prescribing is considered essential in order to support best practice. It is also a requirement of the Health Service Provider to ensure there is a mechanism in place to audit the introduction of this initiative. The purpose of this Guidance Document is to assist health service providers within the voluntary and statutory services of the Health Service Executive to monitor activity of and audit prescription writing standards of Registered Nurse Prescribers. In addition, it aims to lay the foundation for subsequent audits into clinical decision making, appropriateness of prescribing and patient outcomes. This document may be used by individuals or audit groups to set and agree the audit objectives for nurse and midwife prescribing, and as a general guide to the process of auditing and the reporting of audit findings. The document is broken into five main sections: Planning an Audit Monitoring Prescribing Activity Auditing Prescription Writing Useful Resources for Audit The sections 'Monitoring Prescribing Activity' and 'Auditing Prescription Writing' each contain workable examples which can be used as a qUick-reference guide. The section 'Useful Resources for Audit' introduces links to a variety of information sources, including the Health Service Executive's e-Iearning centre, which provides a "Clinical Audit" module that teaches the principles of clinical audit. It is hoped that this document will serve as a comprehensive resource for health service providers engaging in the auditing
