What is IPE?

Interprofessional Education

Interprofessional education (IPE) occurs when “students from two or more professions learn about, from and with each other to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes.” (WHO, 2010)

After almost 50 years of enquiry, the World Health Organization and its partners acknowledge that there is sufficient evidence to indicate that effective interprofessional education enables effective collaborative practice, which in turn optimizes health-services, strengthens health systems and improves health outcomes.
