The HETI Health Education in Practice Symposium, held in Sydney on the 7-8th May, provided an important opportunity of two members of the SIF Project, Professor Jill Thistlethwaite and Associate Professor Roger Dunston, to present on the development and current status of the SIF Project. Their presentation, titled ‘Embedding interprofessional education in a uni-professional world’, is available to view.
The symposium was a rich event with many diverse presentations. What stood out from many of the presentations and discussions, was a shared interest in the development of interprofessional, collaborative and team based approaches in both education and practice. One important outcome of the meting will see the SIF Project and HETI talking further about possible ways to collaborate around the development of interprofessional approaches that span higher education into practice.
