Since 2013,representatives from health, social work, education, police and the voluntary sector, working across higher education, practice and community settings, have worked collaboratively to plan and deliver annual inter-professional learning (IPL) conferences for GP trainees, student Health Visitors, School Nurses, Midwives and Social Workers, student SENCOs and teachers, and police officers at postgraduate level.
The annual conference is hosted by Canterbury Christ Church University, I have been part of the inter-professional conference planning group since the beginning. In 2019 a poster was published capturing evaluation findings.
