Advanced clinical practitioners are in demand in primary care. This study looked at the experiences of participants in a hub and spoke training model using a qualitative approach
Background: Advanced clinical practitioners (ACPs) have been fundamental in ensuring the provision of expert care, resulting in an increase in demand in primary care. This demand has incentivised innovation in approaches to education, to maximise the benefits of training with limited resources and harnessing the expertise in the workforce.
Aim: To develop a method of educating and supervising advanced clinical practitioners in training (ACPiTs) in primary care settings situated in a novel hub and spoke environment.
Methods: A qualitative approach with close methodological links to the philosophical work of Heidegger was used to capture the nature of existence and reality in the hub and spoke environment.
Results: Three main themes emerged from the study: support; supervision; and vision.
Conclusion: The hub and spoke format of training is a useful alternative to traditional methods in developing practitioners who work in a bespoke yet broad practice environment, such as primary care.
