The Flinders NT Remote Interprofessional Learning (RIPPL) team recently got together in Darwin to undertake annual strategic planning.
The RIPPL team’s primary purpose is to ensure that all students undertaking Nursing and Allied Health placements in the Northern Territory have a quality learning experience. The team do this by supporting both supervisors and students.
Support provided includes training workshops and one on one sessions with supervisors, regular professional development for students, cultural education specific to the location, and the provision of logistical assistance to students including pre-arrival orientation information, subsidised accommodation, financial assistance to eligible students and access to subsidised travel for remote educational experiences.
Health students from a wide range of universities across Australia undertake placements in the Northern Territory supported by Flinders NT.
