The project sought to introduce an interprofessional training programme
for 3rd year pre-registration students across a range of professional
groups. The programme was developed collaboratively with three National
Health Service (NHS) sites. Practice education facilitators (PEFs),
social work and voluntary sector equivalents and lecturers were involved
in developing the content and pedagogic approach.
The programme ran over a period of six weeks and was delivered on Trust
premises each week to a range of 50 pre-registration 3rd year students
from different professional disciplines: nursing (adult, child, mental
health and learning disabilities), physiotherapy, podiatry and social
work (although the social work students were studying at masters level –
structural issues meant that it was not possible for BA social work
students to participate on this occasion). Once the students had
completed the programme, they were invited to participate in a focus
group to obtain their views about the training. Each site has a
dedicated PEF who participated in the development, delivery, and
evaluation of the programme.
From the 50 initially recruited, 23 students from the different
professional groups volunteered to participate in the focus group.
Four PEFs were involved in the development of the programme and
participated in the study evaluation.
A mixed methods exploratory case study using an action research approach
was used to fully explore the development, impact and utility of the
Interprofessional Learning Training Programme (ILTP). The research,
predominantly qualitative in nature, sought to capture the students’
experiences of the ILTP and the PEFs’ experience of being involved in
