Advanced clinical practice framework
Advanced clinical practice roles are increasingly seen as key to the delivery of healthcare services.
This framework provides an agreed definition of advanced clinical practice to enable clinicians, managers and education providers to deliver the functions, knowledge and skills to support the competence of our healthcare professionals working in advanced roles.
It provides the foundation on which all future advanced clinical practice roles within the East Midlands should be developed, and on which existing roles can be reviewed and subsequently supported.
This framework supports organisations in developing solutions to the numerous workforce challenges currently being experienced, and has been developed with contributions from our partners across our area, who are passionate about improving patient outcomes through advancing practice to meet the complexity of needs.
It represents a breadth of engagement with contributions from health professionals, workforce managers, employers, universities, professional bodies and unions, as well as our advanced practitioners who have dedicated their time and commitment to develop it.
