Collaborative research

Working Group 5: Collaborative research

Institutions represented by AfrIPEN collaborators in Sub-Saharan Africa were invited to send one delegate to an AfrIPEN workshop to design a Collaborative Research Framework for Interprofessional Education and Collaborative Practice for Sub-Saharan Africa. The workshop was facilitated (17-20 March) by three experts in IPE research and methodologies for health professions education, namely:

  • Prof John Gilbert (University of British Columbia & University of Dalhousie, Canada)
  • Prof Jill Thistlethwaite (University of Technology Sydney, Australia)
  • Prof Susan van Schalkwyk (Centre for Health Professions Education, Stellenbosch University, South Africa)

This Collaborative IPE Research workshop’s aims were to:

  • Reach a common understanding of what is meant by the concept “collaborative research”
  • Share what the participating institutions are doing regarding IPE or relevant HPE research
  • Agree upon a focus area for collaborative IPE research
  • Start working on a protocol and funding proposal
  • Build trust relationships needed for effective collaboration

A detailed report of the research framework will be available shortly.
