More information


Prescribe is based on the learning outcomes set out in Outcomes for Graduates  (originally published in Tomorrow's Doctors 2009). These reflect earlier proposals made by the Safe Prescribing Working Group, convened by the Medical Schools Council in 2007 and set out in greater detail within the British Pharmacological Society's curriculum for medical students.

These competencies include the ability to:

  • establish an accurate drug history

  • plan appropriate therapy for common indications

  • write a safe and legal prescription

  • appraise critically the prescribing of others

  • calculate appropriate doses

  • provide patients with appropriate information

  • access reliable information about medicines

  • detect and report adverse drug reactions
