What is Interprofessional Education?

These are occasions when members or students from two or more professions learn about, from and with each other to improve collaboration and the quality of care and health services.

IPE occurs when students or professionals from two or more professions know each other to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes. IPE is a necessary approach to prepare health personnel for collaborative practice.
