10 Fostering Inter-professional Education/Care at FHCW

11 Inter-professional Education
“the process by which professionals reflect on and develop ways of practicing that provides an integrated and cohesive answer to the needs of the client/family/population… involves continuous interaction and knowledge sharing between professionals, organized to solve or explore a variety of education and care issues all while seeking to optimize the patient’s participation… Inter-professionality requires a paradigm shift, since inter-professional practice has unique characteristics in terms of values, codes of conduct, and ways of working. These characteristics must be elucidated” (WHO, 2010)

12 What is IPE? Inter-professional education occurs when students from two or more professions learn about, from and with each other to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes (WHO,2010)

13 Why IPE “When multiple health workers from different professional backgrounds work together with patients, families, caregivers and communities, they are likely to deliver the highest quality of care” (WHO, 2010)
