Background

Advanced Clinical Practice has never been of greater interest in the UK than now. It is heralded as one of the potential solutions to the workforce and service delivery challenges of the NHS. And as numbers grow the positive impact is being recognised within patient feedback and research.

But Advanced Clinical Practice isn’t regulated and the term is used to cover a range of very different roles. Recent research has shown that not only is the title used by registered practitioners with significantly different education and skills, but some Trusts have unregistered staff who are using the title The four different countries of the UK have each tried different ways to provide clarity and ensure proper governance to ensure patient safety, but the current situation remain untenable Unsurprisingly, the public are confused, as are doctors, commissioners, managers, educators, coroners and advanced practitioners themselves.

While more recently the focus has broadened to include allied health professionals and pharmacists, the large majority of Advanced Practitioners continue to come from the nursing profession. Challenges to this group are regularly made that they are no longer nursing but becoming a “mini doctor” and undoubtedly arguments can be made that increasing the numbers remains part of the doctor-substitute agenda. However, others emphasise the opportunity for new approaches to patient care and service diversification. So when does Advanced Practice stop (or even start) being Nursing? And does it even matter?
