Introduction

Welcome to a wide range of learning materials designed for preparing professionals for effective team working and collaborative practice. The materials shared on this website are the result of over ten years of the design and delivery of interprofessional education by The University of Leicester, De Montfort University and The University of Northampton.

As UK educators we wish to acknowledge the pedagogical contributions of the UK Centre for the Advancement of Interprofessional Education (CAIPE), whose definition of interprofessional education we adhere to:

"Interprofessional Education occurs when two or more professions learn with, from and about each other to improve collaboration and the quality of care"

Interview with Professor Hugh Barr (President of CAIPE)

You may be using these resources as a learner or as a teacher. We recommend that in either case you start by considering how to approach interprofessional education from these vantage points.
