Facilitating Interprofessional Education (IPE) in a health or care setting
Delivered by School of Medicine
The aim of this course is to enable participants to consider the opportunities for interprofessional education (IPE) for staff and/or students within the context of a health or care setting.
The health or care setting is a rich learning environment for staff and students but poses challenges particularly for educators who may not know where to start with IPE in this context. This course will enable participants to explore a toolkit of resources to aid with the planning, delivery, and evaluation of IPE in a health or care setting.
