Advanced Clinical Practitioners.
Scroll down to learn more about our Advanced Clinical Practitioners.
Advanced clinical practitioners (ACPs) are healthcare professionals who have acquired advanced skills and knowledge in their field of practice, enabling them to undertake a broader range of clinical activities than traditional healthcare roles. They typically work in settings such as hospitals, primary care, community healthcare services, and emergency departments.
ACPs are trained to carry out a wide range of clinical activities, including performing physical examinations, diagnosing and treating illnesses, prescribing medications, ordering and interpreting diagnostic tests, and managing patient care. They may also provide counselling and support to patients and their families, as well as liaising with other healthcare professionals to ensure coordinated and effective care.
The specific roles and responsibilities of ACPs vary depending on their area of specialisation. For example, ACPs in emergency medicine may provide advanced life support and critical care interventions, while those in primary care may focus on disease prevention, health promotion, and chronic disease management.
Overall, ACPs play a vital role in the healthcare system, providing high-quality and efficient care to patients while helping to alleviate the burden on other healthcare professionals.
