The International Journal for Advancing Practice, supported by the Centre for Advancing Practice, is a new, quarterly, multi-professional, peer-reviewed journal aimed at all those practicing and studying at an advanced practice and consultant level. It will provide all advanced and consultant practitioners, regardless of specialism, with a comprehensive evidenced-based resource that brings together the pillars of advanced practice: clinical practice; leadership and management; education; and research.
Research, as an integral part of advanced practice, is the key ethos of the research pillar in the Multi-professional framework for advanced clinical practice in England.
The Multi-professional framework for advanced clinical practice in England (Health Education England, 2017), and more recently the Multi-professional consultant-level practice capability and impact framework (NHS England, 2023) both articulate the expected core capabilities spanning all four pillars of practice in advancing practice—including the expected integration of the research pillar—and describe the development into the consultant level of practice for research and innovation.International Journal for Advancing Practice July 2023

All articles are concise, fully referenced, presented in an easy-to-read format and peer-reviewed by some of the world’s leading international authorities.
