We are conducting a Delphi study to validate nurse practitioner (NP) metaspecialty clinical practice standards. This is part of a major study titled: “Educating for health service reform: clinical learning, governance, and capability (CLLEVER2)”. The study is being conducted by the Australian Catholic University in collaboration with Queensland University of Technology, Queensland Health and the Australian College of Nurse Practitioners. The study has been funded by the Australian Research Council (ARC). Ethics committees of the Australian Catholic University and Queensland University of Technology have approved the study.
The first phase of the study involved in-depth interviews of NPs. Based on the findings from those interviews we have developed draft NP metaspecialty clinical practice standards. In this phase of the study we will apply a Delphi technique to further develop the draft clinical practice standards for each metaspecialty and obtain consensus on each.
We are currently working on the formation of an expert panel comprised of NPs who have been endorsed as NPs by the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Board for at least 1 year.
Each of the members of the expert panel will undertake several rounds of review of the draft clinical practice standards. As you are an expert in this domain, we would like to invite you to participate in this study as a member of the Delphi Panels. Please find attached the Information Letter detailing the Delphi study and your role as an expert panel member.
