About IPDC

The International Practice Development Collaborative (IPDC) is a community of practice (practice developers and researchers) who are committed to working together to develop healthcare practice. The IPDC believes that the aim of practice development is to work with people to develop person-centred cultures that are dignified, compassionate and safer for all.

Our vision is working together to grow evidence and capability to support people undertaking practice development in health and social care.

There are four pillars of work:

  • Practice development schools
  • Online journal
  • Conferences
  • Symposia

The work of the IPDC is influenced and informed by the individual academic and scholarly work of the collaborators and practice partners.

The collaborators work in the following organisations:
