    Interprofessional Learning Symposia

    Within the School of Health and Education we believe that gaining an understanding of other professionals' roles and skills in a shared learning context can benefit interprofessional teamworking in practice.

    Interprofessional education occurs when students from two or more professions learn about, from and with each other to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes (WHO 2010).

    Although a requirement of pre-registration nursing and midwifery programmes, to date, the main opportunities for interprofessional learning (IPL) within these programmes have been within placement. We are now addressing the challenge of offering IPL within classroom sessions across, nursing, midwifery, social work and school staff.

    We also believe that interprofessional learning (IPL) will help create healthcare professionals who are able to promote care that is integrated, individualised and holistic in its broadest sense.

    From 2015, students from across the School of Health and Education are given the opportunity to attend a range of interprofessional symposia, to learn with other health and social care professionals and recognise and value shared knowledge and experience.

    Key features of these symposia are:

    • All interprofessional symposia are open to all Health and Education students, at any stage of study
    • They are offered late afternoon, on a weekly basis rotating between Wednesday and Thursday evenings, to allow students to complete daytime lectures
    • All sessions are video recorded
    • Session attendance numbers are monitored to deter those who book and don't attend
    • Nursing students will be expected to show evidence of attending at least one workshop throughout the year, and of accessing learning resources/ carrying out the learning activity for an additional online session,
    • Workshops cover a number of topics and are offered as part of a 'rolling schedule' to address demand, hence some topics might be repeated 2-3 times, others offered just once
    • Learning resources, including videos, from each session are uploaded onto a School IPL website, for access by all students and staff. These resources are accompanied by an online activity per session
    • The timetable runs between September 2015 and June 2016

    For those unable to attend the symposia, material and videos from the sessions can be accessed here.
