Topic: Continuing Interprofessional Education in the Health Professions. A Global View 

November 7-28,2018

Why has interprofessional education (IPE) gained prominence on the global medical education stage? What constitutes effective, outcomes-driven IPE and what is the evidence for this?


Interprofessional collaboration (IPC) is now enshrined in healthcare professions competency frameworks across the globe; in 2010 the WHO issued a clarion call for interprofessional collaboration as a means of addressing the urgent healthcare needs of an aging global population with chronic, complex conditions.[1] Yet IPE represents a fundamental pedagogical shift in many health professional curricula. Are we, as medical educators, sufficiently competent in this area and how can we navigate the challenges of continuing interprofessional education in different cultural and geographical settings?


Join us for this stimulating session.



By participating in this online discussion, you should be able to

  • Identify the rationale for continuing interprofessional education.

  • Create awareness of the challenges of continuing interprofessional education in different cultural and geographical settings.

  • Reflect on the application of the different concepts in their own working environment
