Webinar Overview

Interprofessional education is more than educating learners from different professions in the same room but rather creating educational experiences that allow students "from two or more professions to learn about, from and with each other to enhance effective collaboration and improve health outcomes" (WHO, 2010). This webinar will provide the participant with an overview of the Core Competencies for Interprofessional Collaborative Practice (2011) as core concepts and principles of interprofessional education. The presenters will provide strategies to immerse learners from different professions  in meaningful educational experiences to enhance their teamwork and communication skills to assist their preparation to become collaborative ready practitioners.
