Nurse prescribing has become increasingly important in allowing nurses to assume more proactive roles in ways designed to promote better self-care and concordance with medications by service users. At the moment, there is little evidence of how this can be accomplished in work with older people with cognitive impairments. In this article we consider the experiences of service users and family carers, based on a small-scale qualitative research study carried out during the early stages of implementing nurse prescribing from a memory clinic in Doncaster, UK. We conclude by reviewing the lessons learned from this formative evaluation.
