Advanced Practice

An Advanced Practitioner is defined as a professional who fulfils all aspects of the expectations for the ASMIRT Certified Practitioner and, additionally, demonstrates expertise across seven dimensions of practice, and is able to provide evidence of their advanced capability in each dimension. While the dimensions of practice are described individually, the Advanced Practitioner recognises their practice as holistic and is able to draw appropriately upon all aspects of their expertise to provide optimal, expert, contextual patient care.

APAP response to the IPAT Recommendations

During 2013 the Advanced Practice Advisory Panel (APAP) has been working hard to devise a model of advanced practice which fulfils the requirements of the Inter-Professional Advisory Team (IPAT) report (Freckelton, 2012) and which will also be acceptable to all stakeholders. The full draft document, outlining definitions, background and suggested pathways towards achieving advanced practice is available here. I encourage all interested MRS professionals and stakeholders to consider the document and provide any relevant feedback to apap@asmirt.org
