Abstract

Healthcare managers play a key role in the ever changing landscape of
healthcare delivery (Ellis and Bach 2015). This includes “identifying,
contributing to and monitoring team members professional development
and learning,” (Gopee and Galloway 2014:29). In particular nurse
managers will be increasingly involved in planning service development to
incorporate advancing roles in practice, including prescribing practice. The
need for a highly skilled and educated workforce, including the ability to
prescribe, is seen as essential in many clinical settings (Jackson and
Carberry 2014). This can be seen across a variety of care sectors from
acute to community and out of hours (Pearce and Winter 2014, Smith,
Latter and Blenkinsop 2014).
