Interprofessional Education

April is National Interprofessional Health Care Month!

Interprofessional Education

Interprofessional education (IPE) occurs when students of two or more healthcare professions are engaged in learning with, from, and about each other at certain periods during their professional pre-licensure education.  IPE adds value to professional education by enhancing respect for the contributions of all professions; and, by providing training in and modeling of quality interprofessional teamwork.  Inadequate interprofessional teamwork has been implicated in poor patient outcomes.
