Multi-professional framework for advanced clinical practice in England

Multi-professional framework for advanced clinical practice in England

The National Framework for Multi-Professional Advanced Clinical Practice includes, for the first time, a national definition and standards for the multi-professional advanced level of practice.

ACPs enhance capacity and capability within multi-professional teams by supporting existing and more established roles. They also help to improve clinical continuity, provide more patient-focused care, and help to provide safe, accessible and high-quality care for patients.

The framework provides national definition and framework of what Advanced Clinical Practice is and what the requirements for entry are. It will make sure  that there is national consistency across the role and  that advanced clinical practitioners, healthcare staff, employers and patients clearly understand the role. It  will also provide current and future ACPs with guidance and principles that they should follow throughout their professional lives.
