© Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd. 2018. In this chapter, we consider two case studies where the Interpretive Frame work was applied to contexts other than education. The first case study was concerned with improving the professional experience programme for nursing and medical students who undertook placement at a healthcare organisation (HCO). In the second case study, the Interpretive Framework was applied to a project to establish two medical-legal partnerships (MLPs) to better support people with mental health issues to deal with legal problems. The adaptability of the Interpretive Framework becomes evident when, in the first case, it was used to evaluate and improve an existing learning partnership between the university and a HCO, while in the second, it was used to support the establishment of a new partnership between lawyers and mental health clinics. The stakeholders reported that the Interpretive Framework was, with minor adjustments to language, readily adapted to their contexts.
