Multidisciplinary. Transdisciplinary. Interprofessional. What are the differences? Why is an interprofessional approach important for the classroom, for the clinical environment, for healthcare consumers/patients? While teamwork has long been advocated as a goal of healthcare delivery, advances in healthcare delivery propelled healthcare professionals to recognize the patient as a pivotal member of the healthcare team and not solely the reason for the healthcare team. With the research showing how interprofessional collaboration improves quality of care, become empowered through this webinar to recognize, explain, and/or implement interprofessional collaboration. Become enlightened as to where interprofessional care may be headed in the future to merge cost-effective, lean, and evidence-supported care!


The goal of this presentation is to describe a foundational understanding of the value and outcomes of interprofessional education and collaborative care approaches. Upon completion of the webinar, learners will be able to:
  • Define interprofessional education and collaborative care
  • Discuss the rationale for implementing interprofessional education
  • Describe the impact on patient outcomes of interprofessional collaborative care
