Interprofessional Health Education & Leadership: 2011 IPHL Conference

Keynote

Learning Together to Practice Collaboratively: Some Principles for Interprofessional Education

Abstract: We always used to talk about learning to "work" together. The definition of IPE must lead us to the conclusion, however, that what we are trying to achieve through IPE is more than an appreciate of working together.  Interprofessional Education and learning are the means by which to foster collaborative practice. Good collaborative practice leads to high quality care.
