“Interprofessional education occurs when students from two or more professions learn about, from, and with each other to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes. Once students understand how to work interprofessionally, they are ready to enter the workplace as a member of the collaborative practice team. This is a key step in moving health systems from fragmentation to a position of strength.” (WHO 2010)
Interprofessional collaborative practice
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)
