Abstract

As the global community continues to face increasing mobility, rising healthcare costs, and decreasing or inaccessible healthcare resources, healthcare providers must be able to work together effectively in addressing the needs of progressively older and diverse persons and populations. In this column, the notion of interprofessional education (IPE) is explored and a model proposed for implementation in an institution offering graduate programs in nursing and occupational therapy. While the proposed model was developed for two disciplinary programs in a specific institution, the recommendations offered may easily be adapted for use in academic institutions offering varied and unique healthcare professional programs.
