Advanced Clinical Practitioners

Advanced Clinical Practitioners are experienced, registered healthcare professionals who come from a range of professional backgrounds such as nursing and pharmacy.  Advanced Clinical Practice is characterised by a high degree of autonomy and complex decision making.  This is underpinned by a masters level degree that encompasses the four pillars of Advanced Practice:

  1. Clinical practice
  2. Leadership and management 
  3. Education 
  4. Research

Advanced Clinical Practitioners can assess patients with diagnosed and undiagnosed problems, perform physical examination, request appropriate investigations, prescribe/treat conditions and, when needed, refer patients to specialist services.
