“Inter-professional Simulation Training to Promote Working With Families and Networks in Mental Health Services” is a paper that evaluated the impact of an inter-professional simulation course for professionals working with families and networks of patients with mental illness on their confidence, attitudes, and perceived future clinical practice. It was found that overall confidence and attitudes improved, and qualitative data suggested improvements in professional development, team working, and patient care and experience.
