In our support program, Operation Team – Interprofessional Learning in the Health Care Professions, we have made funding available for the development and implementation of interprofessional learning units for health care professionals. We campaign for the fact that the future health care professionals are already trained in interprofessional team work during their education and can learn the skills and abilities necessary for a good cooperation. Therefore a successful cooperation must be learnt and need to be trained actively!
Currently we support eight projects in form of regional cooperations in Greifswald, Berlin, Lübeck, Jena, Munich, Bochum and Mannheim. The projects differ in their content and theme focus, in the structure of the interprofessional learning units, in the target group constellation as well as in the institutional cooperation. Important is the concurrent understanding of interprofessional learning as a process, in wich different health care professionals learn with each other, from and about one another to improve their team work and cooperation and therefore the patient’s care.
