A specialist workshop on non-medical prescribing was hosted at the British Oncology Pharmacy Association (BOPA) Annual Symposium 2018, Birmingham, UK. The aim of this session was to encourage open discussion around the issues and challenges faced by Oncology Pharmacists. Emma Foreman, BPharma (Hons), from the Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust, London, UK, shares insights from the workshop which were of help to those new to non-medical prescribing. These included finding your area of expertise, what to consider when setting up a practise and working within a multidisciplinary team. Ms Foreman also highlights the importance of networking, especially through organisations like BOPA.
