Advanced Practitioners will be able to evidence their accredited education and training, securely and digitally, under a new scheme which will be delivered by the Centre for Advancing Practice, which is part of Health Education England.
Digital Badges will enable practitioners to evidence the completion of an Advanced Practice programme
Dr Julian Barratt, HEE Lead for the Centre for Advancing Practice said:
“Digital Badges provide recognition of the quality assurance of the educational and experiential preparation of advanced practitioners to ensure a consistent approach to the urgent need to recognise on a standardised basis the experience, knowledge, and skills of existing, experienced advanced practitioners in the workforce.”
