Miles Rinaldi discusses how interagency co-operation is crucial to the successful vocational rehabilitation of those with mental health problems.
Our aim was to consider new opportunities for inter-professional learning within a range of existing and new service settings and explore the possibilities for a shared approach to the assessment of social work students in these placements. We have done this by placing one cohort (8) of Fast-track Direct Practice 1. (D.P.1.) Diploma in Social Work (Dip.S.W.) students in a range of placements provided by Quarriers.
This evaluation examines the processes involved in establishing the provision of a range of innovative opportunities for interprofessional learning. The report also evaluates the experience of students who have completed interprofessional practice placements on two demonstration projects. The pilot projects operated from October 2004 until March 2005 and the demonstration projects operated from February to June 2005.
Between November 2003 and July 2005, the Scottish Institute for Excellence in Social Work Education commissioned The Universities of Edinburgh, Dundee and The Robert Gordon University to undertake a study of Learning for Effective and Ethical Practice (LEEP), the main purpose of which was as follows: To improve radically the quality, quantity, range, relevance, inter-professionality and management of practice learning opportunities for the new social work honours degree.
Opportunities for interprofessional learning and agency-based practice learning opportunities. This practice audit was carried out as part of the Learning for Effective and Ethical Practice project, funded by the Scottish Institute for Excellence in Social Work Education. The audit examined three different but related areas: integration of learning for practice, opportunities for inter-professional learning and agency-based learning opportunities.
This review seeks to identify the key themes informing the task of equipping social workers to work in a multidisciplinary context (SSSC 2003). The review considers how policy imperatives for organisational change have reinforced new budgetary, managerial and operational relationships across the professions.
