International IPECP Profile

Posted: 27th May 2021


Hi, my name is Dr. Vikki Park. I’m a Senior Lecturer in Adult Nursing at Northumbria University in Newcastle, UK. It’s great to get the chance to virtually meet you all and I look forward to reading other member profiles in the weeks that follow. My clinical expertise is in critical care and my passion for interprofessional education (IPE) started whilst nursing and has continued into my academic career. So much so that I recently completed my PhD exploring interprofessional learning culture in adult critical care and am looking forward to publishing and further disseminating my findings. If you are intrigued (or perhaps have insomnia and are looking for a cure) you can find my thesis here: http://nrl.northumbria.ac.uk/id/eprint/45621/


I have a leadership role with IPE within my university which supports around 3000 students from 9 professional fields per year. As well as researching, teaching, facilitating, and leading interprofessional activities, I’ve recently become an active member of IPR.Global and have joined the Communication Taskforce. New members are always welcome, so do get it touch and I’m looking forward to working with colleagues across the world to promote interprofessional research. In the UK, the national organisation for IPE is CAIPE (Centre for the Advancement of Interprofessional Education) and I am a research working group member, in addition to being a member of INHWE (International Network for Health Workforce Education) an international organisation bringing healthcare educators and researchers together from all disciplines. 


It’s an exciting time for interprofessional collaboration and the COVID pandemic has emphasised the need for health and social care professionals to work together effectively more than ever on a global scale. I’m looking forward to contributing to international interprofessional research and sharing best practice with the goal of promoting high quality safe holistic patient care! 

Interprofessional Research.Global Scholar Spotlight is a regular feature that highlights member research in Interprofessional Education and Collaborative Practice.
