Abstract

Change, for better or worse, seems to be endemic in western societies, and in the past two decades advanced practice has not been exempt. Healthcare leaders and lecturers in the UK have adapted education programmes that are preparing for increasing numbers of health professionals to take on advanced clinical practice roles that meet policy and practice developments emerging from population need and government-influenced changes. Such change has included advanced practice policy from Health Education England (HEE) regarding funding for advanced level students, and the introduction of the advanced clinical practitioner (ACP) title. This article focuses on advanced practice/ACP education.
