2023 IPE Session 2: Is the presence and visibility of collaborative practice a significant positive contributor to the “culture” of a placement and therefore the learning environment?

A conversation-based session kick-started by Heidi Waldron. Participants were encouraged to draw on their own experiences to make connections and exchange ideas.

Dale Sheehan draws on her experience conducting interviews with both undergraduate and new graduate doctors as part of a project to explore the culture of a range of clinical placements seeking to make visible the key features of each placement.

In this study Dale recognises three perspectives on culture and seeks to explore them all in the context of clinical learning environments. Practice perspective, such as "How things are done here!" is the key perspective on culture that Dale considers in this session.

Gary reflects on his experience designing a faculty-wide IPE programme at Griffith University over a period of pre-COVID years and how he is approaching supporting colleagues to undertake the same task at Deakin University but in a world changed by the pandemic. Participants will discuss their experiences designing IPE initiatives and consider ways that the pandemic has presented new challenges and opportunities.
