The Calderdale Framework team are working with HEE Yorks and the Humber to build Calderdale Framework Facilitator capacity across the region. The focus being on development of Advanced Clinical Practitioner roles, but also as added value to the process, exploring Assistant Practitioner roles and working towards a competent, confidant and valued non-registered workforce. Some very exciting hybrid roles are emerging all based on patient need and clinically led so watch this space!
Sheffield Hallam University will be undertaking research into the development of ACP roles and the impact they may have in role substitution for Foundation Year (F1/F2) Doctors. This will use the Calderdale Framework to clarify and develop the ACP role.
We will keep you updated.
