Goals and Learning Outcomes

Contemporary healthcare requires efficient and effective interaction and teamwork by groups of diverse professional healthcare providers. Interprofessional (IP) education aims to improve collaborative practice in which healthcare decisions are made as a cohesive group, including the patient. Continuing education programs with an IP focus can be a powerful method to break down barriers that hinder collaboration. This course will review the essential features of IP teamwork, the emerging role of IP continuing education in supporting growth and effectiveness of healthcare providers, and maintenance of well-functioning clinical healthcare teams.

After taking this course, you should be able to:

  • Identify the benefits of IP team collaboration for patients and professional care providers when compared to traditional approaches.
  • Determine the role of interprofessional continuing education (IPCE) in facilitating care providers’ development of IP clinical practice.
  • Recognize IPCE instructional methods and structure.
