Interprofessional Education: Sharing Research and Practice

Thursday 2nd February 2017 – Augustine Hall

The Faculties of Education and Health & Wellbeing have organised a joint conference designed to inspire you and to extend your lens of professional possibilities. Interprofessional work can challenge assumptions about knowledge and practice and by doing so, it can extend the professional landscape.

Colleagues from the Faculties of Health & Wellbeing and Education have organised presentations and workshops to stimulate fresh thinking and created talking spaces to debate issues about integrated practice in a multidisciplinary arena.

If you would like to attend the conference, please register using the link below. https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/interprofessional-education-sharing-research-and-practice-tickets-30848249946
