Principles of Interprofessional Education

The University of Leicester, De Monfort University and The University of Northampton

Our three universities in South Trent, the midlands UK, came together to design Interprofessional education (IPE) because we each trained different health and social care professionals. Together we have developed shared principles for undergraduate/pre-registration learning. These have resulted in the Three Strand Model and additional materials relevant for shared learning. Both materials directly from our strategy and other materials can be found in this repository. Within the time constraints of one year we may not have placed all our work on this site but we hope you will contact us to discuss our work.

To realise our original vision for undergraduate/pre-registration IPE a strategy was required. The strategy established a partnership between The University of Leicester, De Montfort University and the University of Northampton to prepare a wide range of health and social care students with interprofessional knowledge and skills, relevant for working in the modern health and social care workplace settings. The goal was to prepare future health and social care professionals to work in effective multi-disciplinary teams. The learning about and experiencing the complexities of team working were embedded within respective health and social care curricula. The on-going realisation of the strategy forges closer working relationships between Higher Education Institutions (HEI’s) and the National Health Service (NHS) Trusts, Social Care Organisations and the voluntary sector within the UK.
