Interprofessional education in a rural context

Evaluation of undergraduate interprofessional education is an ongoing focus for the University of Newcastle Department of Rural Health. Students are supported to work together and identify the skills and knowledge needed for team based care. The University of Newcastle Department of Rural Health has conducted interprofessional learning modules for rural based medical, nursing and allied health students since 2003 and continues to lead the way in interprofessional education for students on rural professional practice placements.
