Evidence shows that better individual care is achieved within health and social care by effective collaboration between teams. As such, interprofessional education is one of our key learning strategies.
Our undergraduates take interprofessional modules in small groups made up of students from various professional backgrounds, helping them develop collaborative skills. They use learning materials which enable them to interact with practice-based situations and gain an understanding of the service user's perspective.
They use our internationally recognised Interprofessional Capability Framework to record the skills, knowledge and attributes they have acquired for effective collaborative practice.
