Preparing Faculty for the IPE Curriculum: Transforming the Learning Landscape Webinar

Interprofessional education (IPE) in the pre-licensure health professional curricula aims to develop practice-ready interprofessional collaborative practitioners. Three prepositions succinctly describe IPE as when two or more professions learn 'about, with, from' each other 'for' person-centered collaborative care.

In North America, the United States Interprofessional Education Collaboration (IPEC) and the Canadian Accreditation of Interprofessional Health Education (AIPHE) have articulated the interprofessional collaborative practice (ICP) competencies. These are the basis of IPE within health professional curricula. Planning and facilitating an IPE learning event is not like teaching in uni-professional curricula. Faculty want to deliver such curricula, but know it just isn't the same as preparing for teaching in their profession specific programs. They are aware of the need for an ontological shift in the pre-licensure curricula and within themselves. Faculty must be nurtured to build self-efficacy and ability to create, participate, and lead IPE learning events for the students of the curricula; they must become reflective, self-assessing competent IPE facilitators.


Participants of this webinar will be able to:

  • Discuss faculty role in infusing health professional curricula within IPE learning experiences.
  • Reflect on current IPE experiences based on attributes of IPE learning events.
  • Draft an IPE learning event.
