MetadataShow full item record
BackgroundInterprofessional education (IPE) is rapidly becoming a requirement of healthcare education; however, developing consistent and agreed-upon standards across health profession schools is an arduous task. Cooperation among schools is not only logistically difficult, but often ideologies of what collaborative care looks like can differ. While individual schools can develop their own IPE standards to measure their students' progress, the very notion of interprofessional education calls for a collaborative and objective plan for how IPE will be carried out in all of the health professional schools.
