About The Webinar

The aim of this webinar is two-fold i) to highlight potential changes and impact of physiotherapists being able to train as prescribers and ii) highlight the role physiotherapists can potentially take in advising patients and safe and effective use of medications they might already be taking.

David qualified as a supplementary prescriber in 2008 and independent prescriber in 2014. David will be discussing the changes and implications to his practice working both as Extended Scope Physiotherapist in NHS based chronic pain management clinic and also private practice performing ultrasound guided.

David will also discuss the role of physiotherapists may have in advising patients about pain medication. The main focus here will be around non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs) considering their benefits and also their potential adverse effects as a way of illustrating how physiotherapists can support patients with medicines usage and medicines management advice.
