CAIPE (2008) [Authored: Low, H. & Barr, H.] Practice Learning 
for Interprofessional Collaboration- Perspectives from
 Programmes leading to the Social Work Degree. Report to the Department of Health.

The Department of Health (DH) commissioned the UK Centre for the Advancement of Interprofessional Education (CAIPE) in July 2005 to ascertain how higher education institutions (HEIs) in England delivering programmes leading to the Social Work Degree were providing interprofessional practice learning. Field work was conducted between February 2006 and October 2006. A Symposium to present preliminary findings was held in December 2006 and an Interim Report presented to the Department of Health in February 2007. An internal financial review by CAIPE resulted in a reorganisation and a decision to discontinue the employment of permanent salaried staff from the end of March 2007. The Final Report was prepared by the authors in a voluntary capacity, submitted to the DH in January 2008 and revised in April 2008.

The project focused on learning in practice settings intended to enable students to become competent to collaborate with others; how such learning was facilitated; whether facilitators had been prepared and supported for that role; the underpinning theories and values; and whether interprofessional practice learning was assessed.
