Now available: "ADVANCED NURSING PRACTICE ROLES IN SWITZERLAND: A PROPOSED FRAMEWORK FOR EVALUATION - PEPPA PLUS”.

This document outlines an evaluation framework to promote evidence-informed decision-making about the introduction, implementation and long-term sustainability of Advanced Nursing Practice (ANP) roles in Switzerland.

While ANP role development in Switzerland has been the primary impetus for the framework, the concepts, principles and strategies underpinning the framework are generalizable to ANP roles in other countries. Included in the document are supplemental tools and resources to facilitate framework application.
