This module aims to enhance students ability to conceptualise interdisciplinary working in care environments with a recognition that professionals work in uni-disciplinary, multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary ways and will recognise the role of transdisciplinary professionalism also (Cuff, 2016)

It will develop students interprofessional identity which is recognised as "consistent demonstration of core values evidenced by professionals working together, aspiring to and wisely applying principles of altruism, excellence, caring, ethics, respect, communication, accountability to achieve optimal health and wellness in individuals and communities" (Stern, 2006)

This module maps to the CORU Standards of Proficiency below:

Domain 1: Professional Autonomy and Accountability

Domain 2: Communication, Collaborative Practice, and Team working

Domain 3: Safety and Quality

Domain 4: Professional Development

Domain 5: Professional Knowledge and Skills

Teaching and Learning Strategies

Active learning strategies, case studies, and role-play simulations will be central to the teaching strategies employed throughout this module.

This module is a team-taught to enable students to learn from lecturers with a variety of backgrounds. 

Module Assessment Strategies

The development of a case study, the completion of the National Practice Framework (Meitheal) paperwork and a role play of a meeting informed by this approach will be assessed.

A learning journal which logs the students learning around central themes will be produced for assessment.

A reflection will also be submitted as part of the assessment strategy.
