Continuing Professional Development Blog


Introducing Vikki-Jo’s Advanced Clinical Practice Blog

In this series of blogs I will be exploring some ‘hot potatoes’ related to ACP training and education.  I’ll talk from my personal experience on working in a leadership position in a University and designing and delivering on ACP linked education products.  I’ll also bring in my thoughts as I start to explore this topic for my PhD studies, including the conversations I have with others working in this area and the evidence, policy and guidance documents and case studies I discover along the way.  I hope you find this helpful as you take the leap to undertake, review, re-design, or create ACP education.
