Why do I need IPC on the Run?
The IPC on the Run modules engage learners in a way that will help them improve their practice. Interprofessional education, such as this, enables effective collaborative practice, which in turn optimizes health-services; strengthens health systems; and improves health outcomes.
What is IPC on the Run?
IPC on the Run is an online module series designed to provide flexible interprofessional education (IPE) for interprofessional collaborative practice (IPC). It is based on the National Interprofessional Competency Framework developed by the Canadian Interprofessional Health Collaborative (www.cihc.ca).
The modules include:
- Introduction to IPC
- Interprofessional Communication
- Patient/Client/family/Community-Centred Care
- Role Clarification
- Team Functioning
- Interprofessional Conflict Management
- Collaborative Leadership
The goal of the IPC on the Run program is to enhance your ability to practice collaboratively.
Who should use IPC on the Run?
The IPC on the Run modules are designed for learners from any health care discipline interested in enhancing their ability to practice collaboratively. The modules are designed to meet the needs of learners across the continuum of learning, which starts with pre-licensure, university-based education; includes practice-based education that occurs during placements; and is maintained through continuing professional development.
When should I do the IPC on the Run modules?
The modules provide foundational learning for individuals or organizations looking for a flexible approach to interprofessional education. Each module can be completed independently in approximately 30 minutes and provides activities to engage others in face-to-face learning.
Where do I use the IPC on the Run modules?
The modules can be used in a wide range of contexts. They are designed to meet the unique needs of different learners in different settings. They can be accessed at home, work or even on your mobile device.

Ideally, the modules will be used in conjunction with face-to-face or other interactive activities that promote deeper learning. This website provides resources that support implementation and interactivity. The online components of the program can be completed independently.

- Hosting on your own LMS
- Unique instances of the modules for your learners
- Participant tracking
- Evaluation and reporting
- Integration with your broader initiatives
