Clinical supervision provides an excellent formal forum for developing such skills. If utilised appropriately, it can provide the opportunity for both personal and professional growth (Butterworth 1992). On a more informal level, neonatal staff could organise forums within the working day to allow for such reflection to occur and perhaps lobby their managers to encourage study leave to prepare for such reflective days. The dissemination of such experiential knowledge is as valuable in promoting evidence-based practice as scientific research, especially if parents are also involved.

Perhaps as Rolfe (1998) suggests, an alternative would be to refer to ‘advancing practice’ rather than ‘the advanced practitioner role’, as the latter is suggestive of a post or grade as opposed to a philosophy of practice which all neonatal nurses, with adequate preparation, could work towards. This begs the question of what constitutes ‘adequate preparation’, as the neonatal nurse is confronted with a choice of formal courses such as those approved by the ENB, which carry academic accreditation or the alternative (and it has to be stated, cheaper) option of ‘inhouse’ training.
