Adopting an interprofessional approach has more to do with teaching professions how to learn from and with each other than simply encouraging professions to talk to each other. It takes a team of healthcare personnel to provide quality, comprehensive care, and we need think as a team to provide value-based, well-rounded care. Team efforts can come to a screeching halt when someone refuses to collaborate. Misunderstanding interprofessional teamwork as a concept can impede progress as well. Remove barriers to collaboration and transform your thinking into an interprofessional mindset with real-life examples of successful collaborative healthcare. Interprofessional healthcare is here; are you ready to be part of it?

  • Review information on the basics of interprofessional continuing education including joint accreditation
  • Examine tips for transitioning to IPE
  • Discuss barriers to IPE and how they can be overcome by the interprofessional team
