The event takes place at Manchester Piccadilly train station and aims to promote awareness about how an interprofessional training care home scheme impacts health and social care students, care home staff and care home residents. This event engages and informs the general public with key findings from the University’s small-scale pilot study ‘Not the last resort'. The academics will engage with the general public by displaying key findings on pull-up posters, handing out leaflets and talking to those who engage with the outdoor event. To measure the level of engagement, each person who has actively engaged with the outdoor event will be given a sticker.
By sharing the findings of the ‘Not the last resort’ pilot study, the outdoor event aims to: increase awareness of what interprofessional training is and the benefits it has for students and the health and social care sector in terms of knowledge sharing, skills, and personal development; and create engagement in how interprofessional education can promote person-centred care and create a health and social care workforce that is rich in knowledge and skill for our ageing population.
