Congrats to our International Research Centre for the Advancement of Health Communication (IRCAHC) for signing an MoU with the Faculty of Health and Behavioural Sciences (HaBS) UQ Health at The University of Queensland! Interprofessional education and research is the focus of this new agreement.
The collaborative team will work on a range of initiatives including academic seminars, collaborative research leading to joint applications for research grants and publications and co-supervision of Higher Degree Research students.
“This two-year Memorandum of Understanding provides us the opportunity to develop an interprofessional education communication framework, underpinned by communication accommodation theory,” Associate Professor Neil Cottrell, HaBS Interprofessional Education Director said.
Our Professor Bernadette Watson, IRCAHC Director said the MoU opens the way for the two universities to promote effective interprofessional practice through mutually beneficial education and research.
“Together we can build on the unique expertise both parties bring and forge links with hospitals and healthcare professionals in both regions to ensure best practice,” Prof. Watson added.
