Workshop 6: Inter-professional education - simulation as a platform
Lydia Lofton, Kate O’Loughlin, Chris Sadler and Helen Mills
This workshop has been designed to explore features of multi-professional and inter-professional education. It will focus on how simulation-based education can be used as a vehicle in healthcare to promote learning and collaboration across professional boundaries. The workshop will feature a short presentation on theoretical underpinnings for simulation and inter-professional education and an interactive activity exploring how simulation as a methodology can be applied across different contexts for learning. Findings from the current UCLPartners in-situ simulation project will be shared to enable participants to consider aspects involved in planning learning initiatives for different professional groups.
