Summary "This book is an indispensable source of information for any healthcare professional who wants to become an advanced practitioner." "The various aspects and shifts in focus of advanced practice are illustrated and issues are highlighted. The authors explain the parameters of advanced practice in different contexts and the steps involved in achieving these levels of practice. A range of strategies to achieve the enhancement of self-knowledge and knowledge of others is discussed in relation to managing power, understanding personal differences, using techniques and resources, and being reflective. These assist in individual continuing professional development (CPD) and higher education needs. Examples of career trajectories are given and ways of incorporating scholarship at all levels of practice are discussed. The book demystifies the use of theory in practice and provides detailed information on how to create a CPD plan and set long- and short-term educational goals."
"This text is an essential purchase for healthcare practitioners who want to take the initiative and make the changes that will advance their careers."--BOOK JACKET
