New Report: Evaluation of the Health Education England (HEE) South West Pilot of Supported Training for Emergency Care Advanced Clinical Practitioners

Share:

Our Urgent and Emergency Care theme and the Centre for Urgent and Emergency Care Research have carried out a final report on Evaluating a Pilot of Enhanced Training for Emergency Care Advanced Care Practitioners (EC-ACPs) in partnership with Health Education England South West. Enhanced training support for EC-ACPs shows potential for improved training outcomes. Further studies on developing EC-ACP roles required.

Advanced Clinical Practitioners (ACPs) are healthcare professionals who come from any regulated healthcare professional background (e.g. nurses and paramedics). ACPs undertake extended clinical and educational training to develop the knowledge and autonomous skills to independently assess, investigate, and treat patients. Health Education England (HEE) South West (SW) NHS England (NHSE) provided a package of support for Urgent and Emergency Care ACPs training in emergency departments in the South West, starting in 2019. The pilot aimed to reduce variation in the delivery of ACP training; training experience and duration of the training, to provide a more coherent and sustainable training model.
