Increasing evidence shows that better care is achieved within health and social care by effective collaboration between teams. Interprofessional education helps develop collaborative skills and involves different professional groups learning together.
All undergraduates studying health and social care take interprofessional modules each year. Our learning materials enable students to interact with practice based situations and gain understanding of the service user's perspective.
Interprofessional modules are an integral part of our courses. This ensures our students gain the collaborative and professional skills needed by the health and social care services and improves their employability.
The Faculty of Health and Wellbeing has occupied a lead position in interprofessional education for a number of years and have completed many innovative projects in this area.
