FACULTY OF HEALTH SCIENCES Health Care Team Challenge 2007 Outline Placements in health professions Interprofessional education & learning Innovation - International collaboration development of UQ HCTC model HCTC event Future enhancements Student Voice Questions Minister for Health, the Honourable Stephen Robertson
Placements & Health Professions Integral component of education for health professionals Involve significant time developing discipline-specific skills in a range of settings Are a regulatory requirement of many professions Labour intensive for university and for health organisations Are declining in number as practicing professionals manage increasing caseloads and workforce 'crisis'
Commitments to increase funded student numbers place further pressure on placement venues Employers wanting new skills in graduates - teamwork and interprofessional practice Limited placement options in health services for these new skills University fieldwork timetables are not aligned across the professions to provide interprofessional experiences in the placement context Placements & Health Professions
Interprofessional Education Evolving recognition of IPE and collaborative practice from the World Health Organization (WHO) and The Network: Towards Unity For Health (TUFH). Recognition of IPE in Australia – politically and academically (2004 Nations Health Workforce Strategic Framework) Recognition of IPE on a local scale - The University of Queensland and major employers Importance of incorporating practical IPE experiences for authentic learning. “Interprofessional Education occurs when two or more professions learn with, from and about each other to improve collaboration and the quality of care” - The UK Centre for the Advancement of Interprofessional Education (CAIPE, 2002)
Why a HCTC? FACULTY OF HEALTH SCIENCES Health Care Team Challenge 2007 Prepare students for a new workplace reality Patient care would be improved through IPE / teamwork skills Previous IPE initiatives had not delivered desired outcomes New IPE initiatives – UQ Faculty Health Sciences PhD Scholarship (IPE) New IPE initiatives – UQ Faculty Health Sciences T&L Fellowship (IPE) Re-think the marketing mix for IPE Incentives for student & staff participation - extra-curricula Drive and embed cultural change A vehicle that would be sustainable: business case Link IPE champions: academics, practitioners, students, employers
