multi-disciplinary training

Over the last decade the University of Southampton, and within it the Faculty of Medicine, Health and Biological Sciences, has been committed to developing a model of interprofessional learning and teaching for all health care professionals in partnership with key stakeholders. As a result of this long-term vision, the New Generation Project was established in 1999.

This podcast is an interview with Brenda Gillies, University of Dundee, on inter-professional learning in social work education.

The CETL4HealthNE — a consortium involving the Universities of Durham, Northumbria, Sunderland, Teesside and other partner organisations, with Newcastle University as the lead partner — aims to develop new ways of sharing best practice in healthcare education throughout the range of health professions spanning doctors, dentists, nurses, therapists and pharmacists, in order to meet the needs of the modernised NHS and the growing and changing expectations of patients.

The aim of the Centre for Excellence in Professional Placement Learning (CEPPL) is twofold. Firstly, to share existing excellent practice with both health and social care, and other disciplines, that have a placement or practice component, and to further develop that excellence in collaboration with others and to develop innovative interprofessional student placement opportunities with traditionally disenfranchised and marginalised social groups (e.g. refugees, prisoners, young people who are homeless, carers).

This resource is a web-based community where thousands of health and social care managers connect to share information and develop ideas. Using the Exchange, Viewpoint and Bulletin services, health and social care professionals can work smarter not harder. The exchange promotes service improvement and joined up working.
