Interprofessional practice (IPP) promotes the active participation of each health worker in patient care, with all health workers working together and fully engaging patients and those who support them, to meet the needs of the patient.

‘Interprofessional practice occurs when multiple health workers from different professions work together with patients and their carers and families to provide high quality care and comprehensive health services across settings’ (WHO, 2010).

Southern Queensland Rural Health (SQRH) provides training to assist in developing the interprofessional skills of health workers based on the Canadian Interprofessional Competency Framework. This framework identifies that Interprofessional Practice requires an integration of six competencies to enable optimal health outcomes:

• Interprofessional communication

• Role clarity

• Effective conflict management

• Team functioning

• Collaborative leadership, and

• Focus on patient / client / family and community care.

This one-day workshop is targeted at health professionals who would like to improve their knowledge of IPP in order to implement it in their everyday practice and be an advocate for change in their team.
