Laura Chalmers
Strategic lead for the department for Collaborative Practice and Interprofessional Learning at Robert Gordon University.

My main focus is Interprofessional learning in undergraduate health and social care courses. I believe that education must be memorable: have an impact on the audience. I have a clinical background in critical care and as an academic have focus on critical care and the impact of values based decision making in this field. Clinical simulation is a significant thread of my work and now use this with undergraduate interprofessional learning in all stages. This lends itself to team and collaborative decision making skill rehearsal in preparation for clinical practice. I lead Interprofessional learning for collaborative practice at RGU.
