Project Announcement No. 7 October 21, 2014: Metaspecialties Update

The CLLEVER study investigating team would like to announce that an outcome of Phase 2 of the study- the development of metaspecialties to group specialist nurse practitioner areas of practice - have been taken up by Queensland Health.

The Nursing and Midwifery Office, Queensland Health is using the metaspecialty groupings to define areas of practice for a practice scope register for prescribing medications under the Drug Therapy Protocol. The Queensland Health webpage is here.

The metaspecialities developed in CLLEVER are currently being confirmed by a national Delphi study. Mr Chris Helms is conducting the study as part of his doctoral research program. The Delphi study is nested in an ARC funded research project (named CLLEVER2) that builds on CLLEVER findings.

More information about the Delphi study can be found here.
