Clinical Academic Careers Pathway Capability Framework
The Clinical Academic Careers Capability Framework sets out indicative role responsibilities and clinical and research capabilities with respect to early, mid and senior roles across the pathway. The document is designed not to be prescriptive, but to be used flexibly as individuals may enter the pathway at different clinical and academic levels. It is intended to be used alongside the Department of Health 2012 strategy document Developing the Role of the Clinical Academic Researcher in the Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Professions by NMAHPs and their managers to:
- Guide personal development planning by highlighting training, educational and personal development needed to promote effective role implementation and clinical academic career progression
- Bring clarity to the role and therefore contribute towards maximising the impact of post holders
- Describe expected key skills and knowledge
- Understand the clinical and academic proportionality of the joint role
The Framework was developed by Dr Greta Westwood (Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust and University of Southampton) and Professor Alison Richardson (University of Southampton and University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust) after a detailed consultation process with major stakeholders.
Tensions in research collaboration between HEIs and NHS Trusts for NMAHPs (October 2014)
Collaboration between the NHS and higher education institutions can be hindered by differing perceived demands and values. The AUKUH Clinical Academic Careers Group for NMAHPs has published findings of a survey of more than 300 NHS and HEI colleagues, identifying the nature of tensions between NHS Trusts and HEIs in research collaborations and explains why we must resolve these differences. The findings set out clear differences for the NHS and HEIs relating to efficiency of services (very important to NHS); grants and publications (very important to HEI); diversifying income (important to HEI); and joint appointment posts.
The report is co-authored by Kate Springett, Christine Norton, Sue Louth, Christi Deaton and Annie Young.
