Inter-professional education (IPE)

Recommendation 9

Health professionals’ education and training institutions should consider implementing inter-professional education (IPE) in both undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.

Quality of the evidence: Low

Strength of the recommendation: Conditional

We recommend the option only in the context of rigorous research.

Key consideration:

IPE may be relevant not only to quantity but also to quality and relevance. IPE may be resource-efficient in a way that allows more health workers to be educated; there is a need to obtain much better evidence in institutions with both programmes and resources available to support the necessary research.
