This module forms the 'capstone' of the taught component of the Advanced Nurse Practitioner/Advanced Allied Health Practitioner journey. You will be supported to explore in depth the meaning of Advanced Practice and its associated concepts (such as specialist practice and expert practice), and critically consider the theory practice links between the extensive literature debating these concepts and your own professional speciality. It also enables you to critically explore the four ‘pillars’ of advanced practice i.e. advanced clinical practice, education, research and leadership, and to evidence and critically reflect upon your development as an advanced practitioner in relation to these pillars. The module also equips you to be formally assessed in practice as an advanced practitioner against the four pillars, enabling you to demonstrate the higher level of autonomy which the role requires, and your ability to make clinical judgements in situations that are increasingly complex or uncertain. To achieve this you will undertake an assessment in practice in your own practice setting which is based on the capabilities published by Health Education England (2017). This takes the form of both continuous assessment in practice via a mentor whom you identify, and a tripartite assessment conducted by your mentor and a University assessor. Both take place within your own clinical setting.
