Interprofessional Learning

We offer a variety of opportunities for students, clinicians, and community service providers to learn with and from each other. Our Interprofessional Learning program encourages and provides opportunities for participants to experience an integrated approach, where they can see the benefit of working in an interdisciplinary, reciprocal setting.

The Multidisciplinary Program

We run a weekly multidisciplinary education program every Wednesday. This program is aimed at students in their final years studying any of the health care disciplines within any Australian university or vocational care setting. We have students from a broad range of disciplines and universities attend these sessions, including medicine, nursing, dentistry, oral health, pharmacy and allied health.

The Wednesday program is also open to service providers and clinicians across the health and social care settings, and we ensure that a broad range of perspectives are presented. We invite presentations from local, state-wide, and national health and social care providers and agencies. For example, we regularly hear from organisations such as the National Digital Health Agency, My Aged Care, NDIS and the NSW Cancer Council. The program also includes people with lived experience.

Participants can attend the whole day or individual sessions. Most of the sessions are also offered via Zoom.

Providing this opportunity for training students from different disciplines together with service providers ensures that our health students graduate with a broader understanding of the health and social care sector and an understanding of how health is provided within primary care settings.

The Wednesday programs runs from 9.30am–3.30pm most Wednesdays from late January until the end of November each year.

Student-led case discussions

Our weekly student-led case discussions also reflects our belief in the value of interprofessional learning. Students are supported each week across a range of disciplines to develop a case study presentation that is patient centred and includes a rural and interdisciplinary focus. This program is attended by up to 40 participants each week including service providers, students, and clinicians from a range of disciplines.

The student-led discussions run from 12.30-1.30pm each Friday from February to November in person in Lismore or via Zoom with different topics are presented each week.
