A Capabilities Framework for Advanced Clinical Practice in Learning Disabilities and Autism services

Health Education England has commissioned the development of a Capabilities Framework to provide a definition of advanced clinical practice delivered by Allied Health Professionals (AHPs) and Nursing staff in learning disabilities and autism services. The framework will set out the capabilities (including knowledge, skills and behaviours) characterised by a high degree of autonomy, complex decision making and management of risks.

The purpose of the framework is to support development and planning of the workforce, to inform the design of curricula and the delivery of education and training programmes.

A steering group comprising key stakeholder organisations will guide the development process, which will include a review of existing source documents (such as relevant curricula, frameworks and guidance) and development of a draft framework ready for wider consultation.
