Lecture Overview

Many health professionals are already working at an advanced level but in some cases this may be unrecognised or unsupported. Advanced practice is essential in meeting the future health needs of our community. This introductory session of the conference will briefly review the current definitions of advanced practice in Australia and consider how practices are evolving and why there is an increased need for advanced practice roles.
