Interprofessional Learning and Teaching in Medicine,
Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy and Nursing
Project duration: 01/02/2016 - 31/12/2017
Project staff: Ronja Behrend
The objective of the second support phase is the permanent integration of the developed interprofessional teaching courses into the respective curricula of the three participating universities. The focus is on finding solutions to the challenges that arose due to difficult organisational and capacity-related circumstances. Additional focus areas are networking and public relations work, and the familiarisation of students and political decision-makers with the necessity of interprofessional learning. By networking with other stakeholders, such as those who are also part of the operation team of the interTUT project, a common framework should be established which furthers interprofessional training and promotes the participating universities. In this instance, raising awareness among (higher education) political decision-makers is of particular importance in order to initiate a “Berlin road map” for further collaborations among the healthcare professions. Furthermore, participation of students will continue to play a key role: their goal is to use networking to raise awareness on this topic on an informal level among the student body. This is seen as the basis for students to actively campaign and call for innovative and networked teaching formats in their curricula.
