This book helps medical students learn the essentials of safe prescribing practice, and is aimed directly at their needs. It covers all the aspects of prescribing required by the GMC, including principles of prescribing, law and ethics, professional responsibilities, patient communication, at-risk groups, avoiding common errors and what to do when things go wrong.

Key features:

Real-life prescribing case studies and scenarios relate the principles to actual practice and placement situations
Activities throughout each chapter for testing prescribing knowledge and skills
Test questions for the new Prescribing Skills Assessment to help students prepare and be confident that they can pass.
