Are you a Pharmacist; Paramedic; Physiotherapist; GP Nurse?
Advancing Practice has developed over the years with AP Nurses leading the way in Primary Care. Now Primary Care is becoming more multidisciplinary with new roles emerging (ARRS roles), it holds a bright future for highly skilled clinicians to help support medical practitioners in their management of Primary Care Patients.
This HEE-funded project aims to bring together Primary Care Non-Medical Clinicians who are working at or training to become Advanced Practitioners. We also welcome those who are interested in this as a career pathway.
Advanced Practice is a level of practice for certain non-medical professionals such as nurses, physiotherapists, pharmacists, paramedics and physician associates whom all have roles in Primary Care.
To be an advanced practitioner you need to be educated to Masters's degree or equivalent with the skills and knowledge to allow them to extend their scope to support medical practitioners, enhance the care of patients, and develop the workforce within Primary Care.
The underpinning standards and governance document for advanced practice is the Multi-professional framework for advanced clinical practice.
The 4 Pillars are Clinical; Leadership; Education & Research.
