Inter-professional Practice Research. Working Together to Research Together: Cultures, Boundaries and Identities

11/06/2012 (16:00-18:00)

The seminar is free but space is limited. To book a place please email Liz Hudson


Speaker: Professor Jill Thistlethwaite, Director of the Centre for Medical Education and Scholarship (CMEDRS), University of Queensland, Australia

In this interactive seminar I will explore how health and social professions can work together in inter-professional and interdisciplinary teams for both care delivery and research into health and social care practice. 

I will consider how we may learn to work together to research together, particularly in the complex and uncertain environment of clinical practice.  There are numerous definitions of ‘inter’, collaborative practice and even teamwork.  

Some recent research has focussed on identity and ideas of culture to elucidate factors affecting how we learn, work and research together.

Jill is Professor of Medical Education at the University of Queensland.  She trained as a GP in the UK and has worked as a health professional academic in the UK and Australia, most recently at the University of Warwick.  

Her research interests include inter-professional education and practice, professionalism, shared decision making and women’s health.  

She has published extensively in health education and clinical practice, has co-authored four books, is an associate editor of the Journal of Inter-professional Care and is on the editorial advisory board of the Clinical Teacher.

Jill is a founder member of AIPPEN (the Australasian Inter-professional Practice and Education Network) and is President of InterEd (international network to promote IPE and collaborative practice).

Her role at the University of Queensland is to develop research and scholarship in health professional education within the School of Medicine and more widely within the university and with its partners.
