Developing a Co-Ordinated Approach to Interprofessional Education

  • Marcus Grant


In this paper I shall be speaking exclusively about professional education. The premise from which I work is that, in order to improve the quality of a service, the most significant action you can take is to improve the quality of the people providing that service. There are other actions, such as re-defining the aims of the organisations providing the service, re-organising the practices of the organisations, so as to provide a series of different service/client interfaces, or creating a new semantic and administrative structure. In the end, however, the thing which is going to have most effect upon clients coming into contact with an agency is the quality of the staff who operate that agency. Thus, effective professional education is the basis of any coherent service for alcoholics and drug addicts.
