Biography

Susanne is Director of the Centre for Interprofessional Practice (CIPP) and Professor of Interprofessional Practice.  She is also Director of Learning and Teaching Quality for Norwich Medical School. 

Susanne joined CIPP in 2002, initially to set up a pilot with healthcare students.  The purpose of the initiative was to give students an opportunity to learn with, from and about each other allowing them to develop knowledge, skills, attitudes, values and behaviour that underpin effective interprofessional practice and high quality care.  The initial pilot turned out to be a success and as a result she was asked to extend IPL to involve all health and social care students.  In 2016-2017 CIPP offered a number of different opportunities of IPL to ~ 3000 students across twelve different professions. 

CIPP also works with professionals and teams in the practice setting to help them optimise their current interprofessional practice and prepare and manage change.  Working together with others both locally, nationally and internationally has been a key ingredient in CIPP’s and Susanne’s approach to finding the best way forward in the joint attempt at providing meaningful opportunities for IPL that lead to real improvements in patient/client care. 

From 2017-18 delivery of pre-registration IPL transitioned to schools with Susanne as CIPP Director taking on the role of quality assure IPL delivery to all healthcare students at UEA.

Since 2018, Susanne and CIPP will work with the local Trusts in meeting the increasing needs and expectations of our future healthcare practitioners by promoting networking and innovation in interprofessional practice - in teaching and research.
