Abstract

The Institute of Medicine called for all health professionals to be educated in interprofessional teams. Accreditation bodies governing education of health professions responded by creating standards for interprofessional education (IPE) activities. Educators teaching in health professional programs implemented a variety of IPE activities, yet rigorous evaluation of IPE on interprofessional practice and patient outcomes is limited. The authors review the progress of IPE, introduce new trends in IPE, and identify the methods needed to evaluate IPE effectiveness.
