Prescribing for medical aesthetic patients outside of nurse prescribers’ immediate care

Prescribing for medical aesthetic patients outside of nurse prescribers’ immediate care Forewordby Lorna BowesMuch work has been put in by a dedicated team of aesthetic nurses, all members of the British Association of Cosmetic Nurses, who volunteered their knowledge, time and varied experiences to put together a document in the immediate aftermath of the BBC's expose on remote prescribing and subsequent positions of the General Medical Council and Nursing and Midwifery Council. The draft guidelines were then reviewed by a further group of aesthetic nurses and examined for relevance and accuracy. This is, as would be expected, a work that will develop and evolve as aesthetic medicine changes and guidelines from the Nursing and Midwifery Council, Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency and other bodies affect practice. The first review of the guidelines is set for as early as October this year. The document is intended for use by nurse independent prescribers prescribing for patients outside of their immediate care, and the non-prescribing nurses who will be administering the prescribed treatments. The guidelines are published in full here, and thanks must go to the team expertly led by prescriber and nurse practitioner Andrew Rankin. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Aesthetic Nursing Mark Allen Group

Abstract

Forewordby Lorna BowesMuch work has been put in by a dedicated team of aesthetic nurses, all members of the British Association of Cosmetic Nurses, who volunteered their knowledge, time and varied experiences to put together a document in the immediate aftermath of the BBC's expose on remote prescribing and subsequent positions of the General Medical Council and Nursing and Midwifery Council. The draft guidelines were then reviewed by a further group of aesthetic nurses and examined for relevance and accuracy. This is, as would be expected, a work that will develop and evolve as aesthetic medicine changes and guidelines from the Nursing and Midwifery Council, Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency and other bodies affect practice. The first review of the guidelines is set for as early as October this year. The document is intended for use by nurse independent prescribers prescribing for patients outside of their immediate care, and the non-prescribing nurses who will be administering the prescribed treatments. The guidelines are published in full here, and thanks must go to the team expertly led by prescriber and nurse practitioner Andrew Rankin.
