Allied Health Professions (AHP) Advanced Practitioner (AP) Transformation Project

Occupational therapists are being invited to take part in a research study.

What is the purpose of the study?

The overall aim of the study is to explore Advanced Practice roles amongst Allied Health Professional groups in and around London.

Specific aims:

  • To identify AP profiles across the AHP network of professional fields
  • To identify the skills, attributes and experiences of advanced practitioners
  • To explore new models of care amongst AHP APs.

Possible benefits to participation

Participating in this study will help to enhance our understanding of the Advanced Practice workforce amongst Allied Health Professionals.  Results from this study will enable Health Education England (HEE) to determine how skills have been developed particularly around Advanced Practice level and evaluate the perceived impact on service by exploring alternative pathway configurations across professional boundaries.

What will happen to the results of the research study on completion

The results of this study will be included in a project report to Health Education England (HEE).  They may also be included in journal articles or conference presentations.
