In February 2008 Skills for Health, in partnership with NHS West Midlands,
commissioned the Institute for Employment Studies to undertake a national
evaluation of five Advanced Practitioner roles introduced under the New
Practitioner Programme. The research involved a review to identify appropriate
measures to use in the evaluation; a survey of sites at which Advanced
Practitioners were employed and, for comparison, a similar survey of sites without
these roles; and case studies of implementation sites. Although great care had
been taken in designing the survey documents, there was a low response rate,
therefore the data from the survey should be treated with caution. The report is
based on a combination of evidence gained through the survey and richer
qualitative data gathered during the four case study visits
