Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Holistic, co-ordinated patient care requires good interprofessional collaboration. Two universities in Wales developed an interprofessional post-registration course on working with children and young pepole with mental health needs. The findings of interviews with 15 participants from a wide range of professions, after completing the two modules, indicated that there were many benefits from sharing training, and that practitioners should maintain the helpful contact with each other than had been established.
