Supporting and enhancing the development of competence in neuroscience nursing

Advanced Clinical Practitioner (ACP) or (ANP) research survey

Advanced Clinical Practitioner (ACP) or (ANP) research survey

Are you an Advanced Clinical Practitioner (ACP) or (ANP) working in Neurosurgery? On behalf of a researcher from the University of Southampton who is conducting a research study into the role of ACPs and ANPs in Neurosurgery, I am inviting you to partake and circulate this research survey.

As I am sure that you are aware, advanced clinical practice is changing the healthcare workforce, there is very little evidence of what service these practitioners currently provide in Neurosurgery. The purpose of this research is to collate evidence to contribute to the credentialling and regulation debate on ACPs and ANPs in Neurosurgery, by establishing what practice is currently in existence.

Please follow the link to the survey below which includes a Participant Information Sheet and details of the University Ethics Board. Details of the consent process is outlined in the Participant Information Sheet. Participants are not asked to give their name, and the only identifiable data requested is the location of their practice. The survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete.

Your help is much appreciated. If you have any questions about the project, please do not hesitate to contact the researcher by email on Many thanks for considering taking part in the research.
