Increasing evidence shows that better patient care is achieved within health and social care by effective collaboration between teams. Interprofessional learning 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 you to interact with practice based situations and gain understanding of the service user's perspective and of the perspectives of other professionals.
Interprofessional modules typically make up 25 per cent of the course. This ensures you gain the collaborative and professional skills needed by the health and social care services and improves their employability.
The College of Health, Wellbeing and Life Sciences has occupied a lead position in interprofessional learning for a number of years and have completed many innovative projects in this area.
