Prescription Review Program (PRP) Quality Initiative

Saskatchewan Nurse Practitioners (NP) are authorized in accordance with provincial and federal legislation to prescribe and/or dispense drugs listed in Schedules I, II and III of The Drug Schedules Regulations, 1997, as amended from time to time. The CRNS participates in the Saskatchewan Prescription Review Program (PRP) as a part of our public protection mandate.

Beginning in the Spring of 2024, the CRNS will introduce a PRP quality initiative whereby a randomly selected group of NPs will be required to participate in a reflective practice assessment specific to PRP prescribing practices. Those NPs selected will complete a self-assessment tool and a case study to help them analyze how closely their practice aligns with accepted standards and guidelines that influence the safety of PRP prescribing. The process's intent is to be educational provided by PRP and is collegial, supported by evidence-based best practices.

Watch for more information in the New Year. If you have any questions, please contact prp@crns.ca.
