The focus of the PhD research is; The role of Advanced Nurse Practitioners in reducing emergency hospital admissions: a mixed methods qualitative study

Building on the research currently conducted in CLAHRC YH within the Translating Knowledge into Action (TK2A) and ‘Avoidable Attendances and Admissions’ Themes (AAA), the PhD study will investigate knowledge mobilisation (KM) activities by Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANPs) and how these impact on emergency admissions for patients with long term conditions (LTCs). A combination of mixed qualitative methods will be adopted including observations of Advanced Nurse Practitioners at one NHS emergency department (Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust), interviews with patients and focus groups with ANPs and other key stakeholders.
