A new resource is now available for trainee Advanced Clinical Practitioners during their programme of learning.
The Practice Support Guide for Trainee Advanced Clinical Practitioners has been put together by Anna Riley, Training Programme Director for the North West Faculty for Advancing Practice. The guide can be accessed here:
Over the past 18 months, Anna Riley has been working closely with the North West Faculty for Advancing Practice, trainee advanced clinical practitioners, higher education institutions and other stakeholders to put the guide together.
The content has largely been put together through input from current and past trainee Advanced Clinical Practitioners and includes a wealth of resources specific to supervision, work-based learning, academic study and wellbeing.
The resource also contains guidance on what trainee Advanced Clinical Practitioners should do in the event of any difficulties during their training. This could be related to their clinical practice, academic progression or issues in their personal life. The contents also include real life case studies from trainees themselves.
It is hoped that the guide will become the first point of reference for anyone embarking on a career in advanced practice. A poster explaining the development of the guide can be accessed here.
