Join John Gilbert for a discussion about the facets of interprofessional education for person centred collaborative practice and care as they pertain to building new health and social care systems that are focused on patients as partners.

Outcomes for Participants:

By the end of this TUFH Symposium, the participants will be able to:

1. Define interprofessional education and collaborative practice (IPECP) and how these should align with the provision of health & social care services.

2. Outline why health and social care professionals should be concerned with interprofessional education and collaborative practice.

3. Describe some innovative, system transforming solutions that will help shape or influence IPECP in health and social care systems.

We recommend you to read the following article prior to the event:
