Course Summary

This is a three-year part-time apprenticeship programme to support registered non-medical healthcare professionals currently engaged in or developing practitioner-led, autonomous or semi-autonomous, patient-focused services, in an advanced clinical practice role, within a multi-professional team. The emphasis of this programme is predominantly on practice-based learning and outcomes, and is suitable for healthcare professionals from all areas of clinical practice. Advanced Clinical Practitioners work innovatively on a one to one basis with individuals as well as part of a wider team. They work as part of the wider health and social care team and across traditional professional boundaries in health and social care.

Advanced Clinical Practitioners are experienced clinicians who demonstrate expertise in their scope of practice. Advanced Clinical Practitioners manage defined episodes of clinical care independently, from beginning to end, providing care and treatment from the time an individual (includes patients, service users, clients and customers) first presents through to the end of the episode, which may include admission, referral or discharge or care at home. They carry out their full range of duties in relation to individuals’ physical and mental healthcare and in acute, primary, urgent and emergency settings (including hospitals, general practice, individuals’ homes, schools and prisons, and in the public, independent, private and charity sectors). They combine expert clinical skills with research, education and clinical leadership within their scope of practice.
