Lerninhalte (Abstract) Students of ZHAW (School of Health Professions or School of Social Work) will meet in order to exchange professional skills and ideas. The focal point of the week (Monday-Friday) will be discussing and working the problems concerning the subject of interprofessional cooperation within the broad field of health and social care. Lecturers and students will present the organisation of the health and social system in their own country including case studies, which allows discussing and reflecting different interprofessional methods. Study visits at the interface of the Swiss health and social care system will provide us with an insight into interprofessional approaches and challenges in practise. Furthermore, there will be a cultural excursion to the Swiss mountains and an international dinner during the week.
