SCRIPT – supporting safer prescribing practices by healthcare professionals

Rachel Gowland, 28 September 2020

The SCRIPT programme was created in 2010 and developed into a collection of innovative elearning portfolios designed to encourage safe and effective prescribing and medicines management among healthcare professionals.

SCRIPT was developed by the University of Birmingham and OCB Media, and commissioned by Health Education England.

About the SCRIPT elearning programme

Each elearning portfolio has been specifically designed for foundation doctors, foundation dentists, paediatric specialist trainees, nurses, general practitioners, pharmacists and other non-medical prescribers. The portfolios are also available to undergraduate medical, pharmacy and nursing students.

SCRIPT elearning modules cover a wide range of therapeutic topics. A module usually takes approximately 1 hour to complete and does not have to be completed in one sitting. Content has been authored by a team of expert healthcare professionals and is reviewed and updated on a regular basis.
