NHS Education for Scotland


The Advanced Practice Toolkit is a repository for credible and supportive resources relating to Advanced Practice. Although initially focussed on Advanced Nursing Practice, the content will have relevance to other advanced practice roles.

The toolkit supports ongoing developments to enhance understanding of this dynamic role across the four Pillars of clinical practice, research, education and leadership. The toolkit is well placed to widen its scope to other Advanced Practitioners.
