Interprofessional Education 
“Occasions when two or more professions learn with, from and about each other to improve collaboration and the quality of care.”
(CAIPE 1997, 2005)

Interprofessional and Intercultural Educational Initiatives can assist with: 

  1. More effective and efficient patient care and decreasing patient errors.
  2. Greater patient satisfaction and benefit from receiving care from diverse health professionals who value and understand the impact of cultural difference on patient care/outcomes.
  3. Professional growth and personal development, which results in opportunities which transition “from theory to practice.”
  4. A broader understanding of how health professionals work collaboratively to enhance overall patient care.
  5. Maximizing cost-effective resources through collaborative efforts.
