Interprofessional medical education: a central piece of the treatment puzzle

Interprofessional medical education: a central piece of the treatment puzzle
18 July 2018

Inspiring healthcare professionals with the virtues of interprofessionalism in clinical practice is a guiding principle of Transformational Education.

EXCEMED developed its own Train-The-Trainer (TTT) course format to enrich high-level oncologists on the multidisciplinary cancer care model. The programme covered how to overcome challenges and critical issues in communication among specialists, medico-legal implications of an interprofessional approach to cancer care, the cost effectiveness of cancer care, patient perspectives, cultural considerations and much more.

The TTT model is intended for a small group of high-level professionals who want to strengthen their own abilities, exchange knowledge with peers from other parts of the world, and transfer new skills to colleagues in their local clinical context.  Building a spirit of strong interprofessional communication, wherein clinical information is freely shared among team members, is an important focus in all TTT courses.

Every aspect of the interprofessional approach is an invaluable piece of the treatment puzzle; EXCEMED crafts its courses to ensure that patients win when all the pieces come together.
