CEHHS Interprofessional Education
What is IPE?
“Interprofessional education occurs when students from two or more professions learn about, from and with each other to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes. Once students understand how to work interprofessionally, they are ready to enter the workplace as a member of the collaborative practice team” (World Health Organization, 2010, p. 10).
