A new concept within NHS Grampian, the Advanced Care Academy was created to educate and support trainee and developing Advanced Care Practitioners (ACPs). Nurse Consultants Karen Kindness and Alison Moggach employed Academy ANP Fellows to provide expert clinical supervision to trainee ANPs while maintaining service delivery. Within the past year they have supported development of advanced practice roles across a range of platforms of care with focus on maintaining service within GP practice and developing new roles within acute services (cohort illustrated). Other initiatives include: Prehospital emergency care Advancing the role of the District Nurses Forensic Nursing Peer support via social networks
