Advanced and Extended Practice
As the NHS adapts to the ever-changing needs of the population, pharmacy is increasingly being asked to deliver advanced and extended practice services for patients.
Health Education and Improvement Wales (HEIW) provides additional support to organisations and individuals to fund the training and development of staff who are aspiring advanced practitioners or require extended skills.
Advanced and Extended Practice funding provides course fees only for all pharmacy advanced and extended practice developments e.g. MSc modules, full MSc programmes, PTQA, CIPS, Pharmacy Clinical Services Professional BTEC Level 4.
