Developing a Multidisciplinary Remote and Rural Advanced Practice Education Pathway

Rural Advanced Practice (RAP) Learning Needs Self-Assessment Tool

This is a guide to using the self-assessment tool. The purpose of the Self-Assessment Tool (SAT) is to help staff assess their knowledge, skills, competence in relation to the attributes of an effective Remote & Rural Advanced Practitioner.

The Remote and Rural Healthcare Educational Alliance (RRHEAL), NHS Education for Scotland (NES), have been working in partnership with the Scottish Rural Medicine Collaborative (SRMC) to identify an affordable, standardised education and training pathway for multi-disciplinary rural practitioners at advanced practice level.  RRHEAL have completed the initial consultation work and would now like to share this work with key Remote, Rural and Island NHS Board and Educational partners.
