    Re: Prescribing conventions

    In what context have you seen this expression?
    It could mean standard prescribing of drugs for each condition. Like NICE guidance or Clinical Knowledge summaries (Formerly prodigy)
    Or iot may be more about how the script is written. Latin dose abbreviations etc.

    I haver to have a disscussion as part of my NVQ3 and the question is - Explain your understanding of prescribing conventions. List a couple of the commonly used ones and their meanings.

    I have looked online and can find lots of things but don't know which is right
