The Ron Grimley Undergraduate Centre for medical studies has been running educational programmes based around a concept of Interprofessional Education (IPE) since 2008. Interprofessional Learning Team Photograph

IPE has enabled students from a wide range of professions, the opportunity to network with professionals in other specialties that they would not normally have had the opportunity to interact with.

In 2002, the UK Centre for Advancement of Interprofessional Education (CAIPE) asserted that -

 

"Interprofessional Education occurs when two or more professions learn with, from and about each other to improve collaboration and the quality of care".

 

There is a need for healthcare delivery to be well co-ordinated, sensitive to patients' needs with their safety of prime importance. For this to happen, full collaboration is needed between all healthcare professionals.

"Collaborative learning leads to collaborative working"


World Health Organisation (2012)


Despite the fact that the GMC places importance on working with and learning from other health professionals, the majority of shared learning is at postgraduate level.

A number of different approaches
to Interprofessional Education
have been utilised in order to
deliver IPE within the Trust, with
an emphasis on collaboration
and interaction between all professionals involved.
