     Graduate Attributes and
   Interprofessional Education
              Jenny Lorimer
  Lead for Interprofessional Education
• ‘As the range of knowledge and skills has
  expanded, so new professional groups have
  developed to meet the needs of individual
  patients. It becomes clear that no single
  professional group can cover all the ground
  and provide all that is required for each
  patient, hence the need to work in teams and
  to share experience and skills across the
  professions’ (Calman, K. 2005)
 What is Interprofessional Education?
• “inter-professional education occurs when two or
  more professions learn with, from and about one
  another to improve collaboration and the quality
  of care” (CAIPE, 2002)

• To enhance teamwork by health and social care
  workers in order to improve the quality of the
  service user’s experience through the more
  efficient and effective delivery of care and

and weaknesses’
‘It has made me aware of how effective IP working is
and how valuable it is to deliver the best standard of
care for our patients’

holistic care’
