SQRH has been established to increase rural health training opportunities for nursing, midwifery and allied health students and health professionals in regional, rural and remote communities.
We are developing the health workforce where it is needed most.
SQRH supports rural health professionals and students to engage in high quality rural health research.
Date - 1 November 2018
A total of 18 nursing, midwifery and allied health students participated in the first of a series of interprofessional education sessions delivered by SQRH Clinical Educators during October, 2018.
With sessions held at Toowoomba Hospital and Charleville Hospital, students were provided with education sessions and worked through case scenarios to: understand the roles of other professions in their healthcare teams, gain a more thorough knowledge of the expertise each profession brings to patient care, enhance skills in constructive communication and attain further insight into patient-centred care.
Interprofessional Practice Co-ordinator Toni Murray said feedback about the sessions was very positive with students reporting the patient scenarios and interactive learning components as critical to their learning in IPE.
“Interprofessional learning prepares students for interprofessional practice once they graduate and helps to build a strong foundation for enhanced communication in healthcare delivery which ultimately improves health outcomes for patients,” she said.
