Case Study

Interprofessional education enables students to learn together and broaden their knowledge and experiences. The Master of Science program in Reproductive Health at Kamazu College of Nursing, Malawi was developed to address the human resource needs for reproductive health care and the need for a local training programme that could be accessed by more health workers.

This case study shows that such effecitve inteprofessional education is possible when done through a consultative process and commitment from all stakeholders including the government.
