Example text

Although the literature has advocated the contribution of advanced practitioners and physician assistants5 in the intensive care setting, there is scant evidence to determine the impact they have on patient outcomes and any cost saving these roles provide (Kleinpell et al. 2008). This requires further robust research and health economic evaluation to determine the cost-effectiveness of these roles. The same applies to practitioners who substitute for nurses. There is little evidence that where support workers provide services otherwise delivered by qualified nurses this saves money, but there is evidence that critical care assistants (CCAs) make a significant contribution to ease workload pressures on qualified nurses, enabling them to care for sicker patients.
