The Health and Social Care Professional Office are moving forward with advocating for Advance Practice for HSCPs. As such they have put out a call for examples of where, in our case, podiatrists around the country could be considered as working to an advanced level.
If you have examples of these from your colleagues/teams I wonder could you complete ‘Table 2 – Examples of Advanced Practice in Ireland’ on page 3 and 4 of the template attached and return this to me by next week on Monday close of business so that I can collate and submit to the HSCP Office. My apologies for the tight turn around time, I have only received sight of this this week and met with Eileen Walsh of the HSCP Office this afternoon on it so am having to move quite quickly. I would greatly appreciate if you could also share this with Podiatrist colleagues you may think fit into this sphere of working at an advanced level.
If you wish to discuss anything with me I am available all day Friday so we can arrange a call/zoom.
Thank you for your help here, I appreciate you are all very busy.
