Needs Statement

Emerging data suggest that effective and competent interprofessional teams improve health care outcomes. As a result healthcare systems are becoming more reliant on teamwork and collaboration among the professions and professionals.  As a result, health professions educators must design curricular activities and instructional strategies that promote interaction with learners from different professions. This module will orient the learner to the need for, and evidence supporting, interprofessional collaborative practice and education.
