Academic/theoretical preparation for our autonomous advanced clinical practice roles is a key element of the triangle of capability work articulated within Transforming roles paper 2 which sets the standards for preparation of ANPs in Scotland.
Work is well advanced collaborating with University partners to make sure that the course content offered aligns with the core requirements for these roles.
Updates on the refreshed programmes to follow.
Our application of the theory to clinical practice also needs both initial and ongoing assessment to assure competency in practice and robust role development. The NHS Education for Scotland Turas Professional Portfolio now plays a key role in allowing us a “one stop shop” for collating and sharing that evidence: for initial qualification, annual appraisal, and meeting revalidation requirements. If you have experience of using this approach – why not share it with us as a blog?
