Prescribing Guidance

FAO: Final year students Please find attached a revision guide with some generic tips regarding practical prescribing. The document should be self-explanatory but allows you an opportunity to practice this important skill before you are an FY1. While we are unable to discuss this year’s finals it has commonly been assessed in previous finals, it is the area that many students struggle to master so being familiar with a drug chart is important. It is also an area that every year we receive lots of questions about, this hopefully helps pre-empt them. It has therefore been sent out to all final year students for the last 3 years and we are sending it again this year for the same reasons. It is not however intended to replace any part of your training but to supplement it. If you have questions regarding prescribing please ask the teams in your attachments or during the revision course. We regret the Exams and assessment team, exam & year coordinators will be unable to answer individual queries from students, as stated please address these in your placements and revision course.
