Abstract

INTRODUCTION Interprofessional education (IPE) has been recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO) as one potential approach for improving health care delivery and outcomes. The premise is that effective IPE can lead to more effective collaborative practice among health professionals from different disciplines. This in turn can lead to better health care delivery. IPE has been shown in the literature to be associated with increased patient satisfaction, better health outcomes, shorter hospital stays, improved staff morale, and a range of other benefits. In addition, successful examples of IPE initiatives from around the world demonstrate that IPE and collaborative practice can be beneficial to health care in a variety of contexts.
