About the programme

In March 2021 NHSEI introduced Professional Nurse Advocate (PNA) training across England to support recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. This was to sustain an approach to restorative supervision and staff wellbeing, with the aim of improving staff wellbeing and retention, alongside improved patient outcomes.

This programme comprises of 2 sessions:

The role of the Professional Nurse Advocate

This session has been developed to reflect and support those undertaking, or have an interest in, the newly developed PNA role. Please see the newly published guidance for more information.

The A-EQUIP model

This session originally supported those undertaking the Professional Midwifery Advocate (PMA) role. This has been reviewed and revised to accommodate both the PMA and PNA roles.

By completing these elearning sessions, learners will gain a greater understanding of the A-EQUIP model from a conceptual and practical perspective. The elearning will enable learners to embrace and reflect on the opportunities for the future; a model that supports and empowers nurses and midwives to provide safe, high quality, kind, compassionate, care to women, patients, clients and their families.

There’s also an opportunity to self-assess one’s own knowledge and reflect on this throughout the learning through the use of case studies. These highlight how the model can support learners in practice and how it adds value for all healthcare providers.
