Interprofessional practice in education is a teaching method in which students from professional education programmes at UiA practice working with other professionals in real collaborative situations.
The objective is to meet the needs of society for good integration of services aimed at children and youth. Students establish interprofessional teams to collaborate on a specific case provided and selected by one of the practicum partners. The practice is based on experiences from the TVEPS-project at the University of Bergen.
During the autumn of 2019, there was a pilot project with 12 students at three practicum places. Follow up research indicates that students evaluate these practicum experiences as a precious supplement to their usual practicum period. The scheme was continued in 2020.
