If you are not an independent prescriber (IP), you can enrol on the CPPE pathway (below) but you will need to complete the IP training in order to conduct SMRs autonomously. Until you are qualified as an IP, doing SMRs needs to be a process whereby another clinician will need to action the recommendation changes after you have conducted a medication review. The scope for doing SMRs will be limited according to the individual clinical experience and will need to be done under supervision of a clinician.
