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).
