Interprofessional Education (IPE) is more than sitting in seats in a lecture hall together.
It is integrative, experiential, and about learning and practicing the skills needed to function effectively as a highly collaborative team. Interprofessional collaborative practice makes care safer, more patient-centered, and it leads to lower burnout and higher job satisfaction amongst healthcare professionals.
