There is an increasing need for new ways to think about how and on what we are working in health and social care. Interprofessional work and studying interprofessionally have become more important. The Northern Savo Centre of Expertise for the Interprofessional Social and Health Care Education builds new interprofessional environments and models, which respond to the changing needs of social and health care. It creates possibilities for the inventive collaboration between universities, health and social care sector and business.

This project has been planned together with the University of Eastern Finland (UEF) and Savonia University of Applied Sciences (Savonia). There are thousands of students in the UEF and Savonia studying health and social care disciplines. Therefore, we in Northern Savo have a unique opportunity to provide interprofessional education with the real health and social care environment and strengthen the connection between work and education. The project is funded by the European social fund.
