Interprofessional Education (IPE) is an approach to teaching and learning that brings together students from two or more professions to learn about, from, and with each other in service of enabling effective collaboration. The goal of IPE is to improve health outcomes through the education of a practice-ready health care team that is prepared to respond to local health needs (WHO, 2010).

Interprofessional Collaborative Practice (IPCP), or “Practice Transformation,” in health care occurs when multiple health workers from different professional backgrounds provide comprehensive services by working with patients, their families, carers and communities to deliver the highest quality of care across setting (WHO, 2010). The Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) states that, “interprofessional collaborative practice drives safe, high-quality, accessible, person-centered care and improved health outcomes” (2019).
