Interprofessional education: Experiences from a cross-campus final year allied health module

Research output: Other contribution to conferenceAbstract


Interprofessional education (IPE) involves students from different health disciplines coming together to learn about, from and with each other. IPE is seen as an essential requirement for producing a collaborative practice ready health workforce that will strengthen the safety, quality and efficiency of health care systems. IPE leads to greater understanding and respect between professions and enhanced client-centred outcomes. However, undertaking interprofessional education can be challenging, with commonly cited barriers arising from organisational (e.g., lack of leadership skills and financial resources), professional (e.g., accreditation and curriculum differences across courses),and individual (e.g., staff and student enthusiasm) sources.
