Rights and Permissions

Interprofessional education (IPE) is increasingly recognized as a means to improve practice in health and social care. However, to secure interprofessional learning, it is important to create occasions in prelicensure health and social services curriculum so that students can learn with, from and about each other. This paper presents the process behind the development and implementation of an IPE curriculum in 10 health and social sciences programs by a team of professors from the faculties of medicine, nursing sciences and social sciences at Université Laval in the province of Québec, Canada. The pedagogical approach, description of primary objectives and issues related to its implementation in the curriculum programs are also described and discussed.
