Team-Based & Interprofessional Care
At King’s, interprofessional learning and education foreground processes that draw the student’s attention to, and enhance their skills in, communication and collaboration as team member. Acting as a team member requires the student to acquire an interprofessional stance. ‘Interprofessionalism’ is achieved when the student is able to contribute their unique clinical skills to patients’ care by integrating their contribution with the those of others, including those of patients and families.
Interprofessionalism has three dimensions. The first is clinical-technical content knowledge and experience. The second is interpersonal regard and emotional-affective intelligence. The third is organisational insight and strategic-tactical foresight.
At King’s, all interprofessional learning and clinical simulation account for these three dimensions of interprofessionalism.
