The course has two components. Part A can be completed as a Professional development activity, with an internal `non-award' certificate on successful completion course components and practical activities. Part A focuses on building foundational knowledge of the core elements for promoting active learner-centred learning in the clinical setting, including assessment of learning. Part B addresses the communication aspects of interprofessional education including communication, peer support principles, creating positive environments and networking at a distance - working remotely. Completion of this course will provide a firm foundation for supporting learning in non-urban settings.
