Integrated Collaborative Practice Programme Evaluation Report September 2016

The awarding of certificates to participants on the Integrated Collaborative Practice Programme (ICPP) took place in Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Hall on 8th September. The twelve participants on the programme each received a NUI Certificate in Community Education and Equality Studies Level 8 Certificate, which is the equivalent of 20 credit transfers to a BA in Community Studies.

Some of the outcomes achieved included: 
 - Building strategies for more effective integration of services;
 - An enhanced awareness of collaborative practice in community services and settings;
 - An understanding of the role of personal leadership, the values underpinning it and the contribution it makes to integrative services; and
 - Promoting a model of integrated practice that can be replicated elsewhere.

The invited speaker for the graduation ceremony was the Dun Laoghaire County Council Chief Executive, Philomena Poole. The programme was developed and sponsored jointly by the Drug & Alcohol Task Force and Southside Partnership DLR and delivered by Community Action Network (CAN) and Maynooth University. An evaluation report on the ICPP by Patricia Prendiville was launched at the ceremony. View the report here ICPP Report
