Product description


'The content is accessible and easy to follow, with a clearly defined structure. There is an introduction to the nature of advanced practice and a discussion of the clinical skills involved in consultation, care planning and decision making, and how these relate to advance practice roles[...] There are also reflective activities throughout the text that relate directly to theory and practice.' - Brian Burke, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals, Nursing Standard

‘What has been missing for many is the opportunity to develop professional and managerial skills which will allow them to facilitate change and impact on health service policy and provision in their area of practice. This book addresses the professional skills and knowledge needed by these practitioners to ensure they can function effectively and efficiently in the variety of healthcare settings in which they practice, and consequently empower them to develop healthcare services which truly meet the needs of their service users. This text will be an essential resource for those already working in the advanced practice setting but will also inspire the nurse practitioners of the future. I certainly wish this text had been available to support me in my role development 20 years ago!’ – Theresa Porrett, PhD, MSc, RN, Nurse Consultant in Coloproctology and Clinical Director, North East London Bowel Cancer Screening Centre, UK.

'This title is well written and appears to be well-referenced. What is particularly pleasing is the standard layout adopted by all of the contributors, making it easier for the reader to navigate the book. The use of learning outcomes listed at the beginning of each chapter is particularly helpful.' - Phil Jevon, Medical Education Multi Professional Skills Manager, Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust, Manor Hospital, UK.
