What is IPE/CP?

"Interprofessional Education (IPE) occurs when two or more professions learn with, from and about each other to improve collaboration and the quality of care" (CAIPE, 2002).

Interprofessional Collaborative Practice (CP) occurs "when multiple health workers from different professional backgrounds work together with patients, families, careers, and communities to deliver the highest quality of care" (WHO, 2010).

    It is no longer enough for health workers to be professionals. In the current global climate, health workers also need to be interprofessional"
    (WHO, 2010, Framework for Action on IPE & CP, p.36).


    "We all have a moral obligation to work together to improve care for patients"
    (Pronovost & Vohr, Safe Patients- Smart Hospitals, 2010, p.137).
