Educating the Interprofessionals of tomorrow

    Research output: Contribution to conference without a publisher/journalAbstractCommunication


    Studies have shown a need to optimize the quality of Collaborative Practice and interprofessional problem solving in the welfare state (Barr et Low, 2013). To meet this challenge Metropolitan University College has provided interprofessional and innovative courses since 2015 to develop students’ Common competencies, Complementary competencies and Collaborative competencies (Barr, 1998). The course is a 10-week program where up to 1.200 students and 150 lecturers from 12 different welfare educations participate. The students select and follow one of 12 eligible themes that share common learning objectives, but differ in subject matter. The students work in collaboration with practice and in interprofessional study groups closely supervised by the lecturers. The students work based on a mandatory group contract, include evidence-based literature on Interprofessional Education and Collaborative Practice, and end the course with a group exam based on a student-composed video
