Can we now create a space for interprofessional learning, where trust and respect are born and where clinical skills and clinical reasoning is shared between our professional tribes, asks Lucy Brock in this HSJ article.
Lucy works at UCLPartners as the lead for education and simulation. She is also a respiratory physiotherapist and returned to clinical practice to support colleagues on intensive care in March 2020.
Regulatory bodies and education systems exist to ensure that patients are surrounded by competent professionals, but the potential of our workforce is unduly limited by their territorial nature and siloed funding.
The urgency of a pandemic offered almost no time for creative thinking but we now have a relative reprieve and so a chance to reconsider the limits of professional scope. Can we now create a space for interprofessional learning, where trust and respect are born and where clinical skills and clinical reasoning is shared between our brilliant professional tribes? Might this be key in mobilising a more efficient and agile workforce, better prepared for the next wave?
