Collaborative Care Curriculum

Healthcare is delivered by teams. It takes a range of different health professions working together to provide the best outcomes for patients. From pre-hospital, to emergency, to rehabilitation, there's specialised health professionals who each play an important role in a patient's recovery journey.

We're training the next generation of doctors, nurses, pharmacists and allied health professionals. We provide opportunities for learning collaborative care, to ensure our students understand the different healthcare roles and responsibilities and are prepared for collaborating in the workplace.
