LEARNING ABOUT PATIENT AND CLIENT CARE TOGETHER
Interprofessional Education Vision
To effectively address the changing landscape of health care, the College of Health Sciences is dedicated to educating students with an Interprofessional Education (IPE) and Collaborative Practice (IPCP) focus. This is accomplished through understanding current health care issues and creating new solutions through shared leadership, education, service, and scholarship.
Interprofessional Education (IPE)
“When students from two or more professions learn about, from and with each other to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes.” WHO
Interprofessional Collaborative Practice (IPCP)
“When multiple health workers from different professional backgrounds work together with patients/clients, families, careers, and communities to deliver the highest quality of care.” WHO
World Health Organization
“Interprofessional education involves educators and learners from two or more health professions and their foundational disciplines who jointly create and foster a collaborative learning environment. The goal of these efforts is to develop knowledge, skills, and attitudes that result in interprofessional team behaviors and competence. Ideally, interprofessional education is incorporated throughout the entire curriculum in a vertically and horizontally integrated fashion.”
