The provision of healthcare
services occurs within complex healthcare systems, and due to economic,
technological, professional and client demands extensive changes are currently
being seen. Traditional professional roles are being challenged and task shifting
is being utilized at an increasing rate. New complex models of healthcare
services are being developed, in which teamwork will become of even greater
importance than today. In that advanced practice nurses hold a key role in
multi-professional teamwork, one should ask whether and how advanced practice
nursing contributes to a person-centered healthcare system. What is known about
the impact of person-centeredness in healthcare? Is the concept still viable or
is it more a case of “the Emperor’s new clothes”? These topics will be
highlighted through research findings, the Nordic model for advanced practice
nursing’s core nursing values and competence areas, and insights from research
conducted in the Nordic countries in advanced practice nursing.
