Interprofessional education after the pandemic: lessons learned and future considerations
This article concludes the interprofessional education series published by the Centre for the Advancement of Interprofessional Education Research Subgroup, and considers the lessons that can be learned from experiences of emergency remote teaching during the COVID-19 pandemic. Consideration is given to the practicalities of emergency remote teaching, including its preparation, delivery and proposed outcomes of using online platforms for interprofessional education. The article is written as a guide for others to draw on and includes considerations for future delivery and sustainability of interprofessional education in midwifery practice and other fields of health and social care.
The COVID-19 pandemic impacted delivery of interprofessional education across the world; this eighth paper concludes the series published by the UK Centre for the Advancement of Interprofessional Education (CAIPE) Research Subgroup, consolidating lessons learned from earlier papers in the series, and offering ways to inform future interprofessional education. By considering the practicalities of emergency remote teaching in the series, including the preparation, delivery and proposed outcomes of delivering interprofessional education, the article is written to guide, sustain and inform future provision of interprofessional education in midwifery and other fields of health and social care.
The preceding articles in the interprofessional education series, written by UK and international authors, captured the diverse and shared experiences of adapting and sustaining interprofessional education. Case studies were used to offer a unique and rich data source to explore and advance interprofessional education, highlighting the benefits and challenges of interprofessional learning in lockdown. The series recognised the rapid global movement to fully online interprofessional education, while adapting to lockdown measures and maintaining learning outcomes. Through sharing insight and authentic experiences of the global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on interprofessional education provision, and by reporting rich and unique data in case studies, this publication series contributes to the global interprofessional community, offering the opportunity to build resilience, capacity, resourcefulness and readiness for managing the future of interprofessional education and collaborative practice.
