Interprofessional Education (IPE) occurs when “two or more professions learn with, from and about each other to improve collaboration and the quality of care”. The IPE Caucus will facilitate communication and increase awareness of how MLA affiliated information professionals integrate and build partnerships with health/social science schools and divisions that foster IPE. The IPE Caucus will aim to explore trends and implications for those engaged with IPE in their respective role(s).
- To provide a venue where information professionals can share knowledge and experience related to IPE activities and engagement.
- To facilitate use of best practices when coordinating or participating in IPE initiatives.
- To provide opportunities for IPE members to learn more about integration and participation in IPE curricula and its place in the accreditation structure of many licensing bodies.
