Advanced nursing practice

Advanced nursing practice is well established at The Christie.  Our Nurse Clinicians are attached to disease groups, or generic oncology teams, which support acute oncology and junior medical staff.

The Trust is committed to supporting the ongoing continuing professional development (CPD) for Nurse Clinicians and Advanced Practitioners.  Opportunities include:-

The master classes are themed around a particular body system, and consist of a series of lectures and the opportunity to practice advanced clinical skills.

Additional support available includes:

  • Peer/supervisor support from a consultant
  • 360 degree feedback
  • Forum for non-medical prescribers
  • Grand rounds
