Healthcare professionals need to understand teams, teamwork, and education for collaboration, in order to: (1) consider the concepts that reflect interprofessional practice; (2) select evidence that supports the plans they are making; and (3) interpret what research tells them about clinicians and how they can work effectively together within the healthcare system.
Interprofessional Education (IPE) is an increasingly popular education model that aims to educate healthcare professionals to be better collaborators by enabling them to learn with, from and about each other, in order to deliver improved team-based collaborative patient care. However, historical “waves” of IPE have fallen short of meeting this goal. IPE alone is a necessary but insufficient solution for system change. We must look “beyond the lamppost” (Paradis and Whitehead 2018) and embrace an education for collaboration model that is more rigorously supported by evidence that addresses workplace system and structures. The most efficacious models will combine undergraduate and uniprofessional education for collaboration with practice-based interventions.
By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:
Healthcare professionals and health professions educators who are interested in designing interprofessional educational activities or develop and implement interprofessional clinical programmes whose members practice collaboratively. Those who are skeptical about how most IPE is conducted at present are particularly welcome.
