This programme has been developed in response to an emerging healthcare role, namely the Advanced Clinical Practitioner (ACP). It is designed to equip and enhance the healthcare practitioner with knowledge and skills in the expanding field of advanced practice, especially within secondary care.
The curriculum and competency framework for Advanced Clinical Practitioner training has been developed by The Royal College of Emergency Medicine. This has informed the curriculum content and structure of this programme.
Central to the Advanced Clinical Practitioner educational process is the development of a five year credentialing portfolio, of which a prerequisite is a master's level Advanced Practice award (Royal College of Emergengy Medicine, 2015); this programme aims to fulfil this requirement. The evidence-based credentialing portfolio is not part of the programme and should be completed in partnership with your employing organisation.
You must be a registered healthcare practitioner, i.e. Nurse, Paramedic or Operating Department Practitioner and have a minimum of two years post-qualifying experience. All students applying to the programme will have normally achieved a first degree, or at least 60 credits at Level 6 from a United Kingdom (UK) based University, an affiliated college or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard. In addition you must be currently employed in a relevant clinical practice area and have organisational support to undertake this programme.
