Chiang Mai University
In May 2011, the School of Nursing and Midwifery (now the School of Health Sciences) played host to visiting academics from Chang Mai University, Thailand.
During their time at UEA, Dr Punpilai Sriaporn and Dr Areewan Klunklin had the opportunity to visit the Centre for Interprofessional Practice and discover first-hand how Interprofessional Learning (IPL) is delivered to healthcare students at UEA.
The CIPP Team gave the visitors a presentation detailing the principles of effective IPL and how this has been developed for students across the health and social care professions at the university.
The department is always happy to welcome visitors from the United Kingdom and overseas, and to share with them our enthusiasm and eagerness to provide the best possible interprofessional experience for health and social care students – always with the aim of promoting interprofessional co-operation and collaboration, and thus improving patient care.
