Why is Interprofessional Education Important?
Interprofessional collaboration is increasingly recognized as a means of meeting the complex demands of today’s health care environment. It involves a team of health care providers working together, each making a unique contribution to achieving a common goal. Interprofessional education helps ensure health care professionals have the knowledge and skills to work together to improve patient outcomes. It involves two or more professions learning “with, from and about each other to improve collaboration and the quality of care” (CAIPE, 2002). Students that engage in interprofessional learning will gain knowledge and skills that will enable them become change agents and transform the health care system to better meet the diverse needs of society.
