Topic outline

  • Multi-professional practice simulator

    Effective communication between professions improves outcomes for people who use services. Scottish Government commissioned this simulation to support the development of the social services, health and education workforce by increasing abilities to work and operate effectively in a multi-professional environment.

    The Scottish Social Services Council, working in partnership with NHS Education Scotland and Education for Scotland has developed this practice simulation to allow professionals from a range of backgrounds to work with a fictitious 'case' scenario and discuss approaches to resolving the situation presented with colleagues from other professions, away from the pressures of their day-to-day work.
