Through national updates and extended interactive practical case studies delegates will hear how to develop and maintain prescribing competence, and how to develop effectiveness in post qualification practice. The conference will also reflect on pain prescribing during the Covid-19 pandemic, update delegates on the NICE Guideline on Chronic Pain, and on current developments with regard to opioid prescribing.
