Abstract or description

Implications for nursing practice
▪ Nurse prescribing roles can be successfully implemented within acute healthcare services, but effective workforce planning is required to engage the whole team.

▪ Nurse prescribers have the potential to enhance patient satisfaction with medication information in acute settings. The impact of this on concordance and adherence requires further study.
Implications for nursing research
▪ The impact of increased satisfaction on concordance and adherence rates requires further study.

▪ The findings suggest that further research is necessary with Black and Minority Ethnic populations, with a particular focus on concerns about prescribed medication.
