Advanced clinical practitioner apprenticeship

Manage defined episodes of clinical care independently, providing care and treatment

An advanced clinical practitioner manages defined episodes of clinical care independently, from beginning to end, providing care and treatment from the time an individual first presents through to the end of the episode, which may include admission, referral, discharge or care at home.
