8-14TH NOV 2020 ADVANCED PRACTICE WEEK Celebrating Advanced Practitioners


Celebrating Advanced Practitioners Advanced Practitioners are patient-centred clinicians who provide a unique combination of their base profession expertise and advanced clinical skills. In the UK they are registered health professionals and come from nursing, physiotherapy, paramedic, pharmacy and other allied health professional backgrounds.

We need to raise awareness of their value to the health service.

Use conferences, local events and social media to showcase the benefits during AP week 2020.
