The Office of Interprofessional Education remains committed to the advancement of evidence-informed research in innovative interprofessional pedagogy to target the competency development of interprofessional collaboration. In addition, through the ongoing evaluation of the IPE curriculum, research objectives are established to investigate the best IPE evaluation tools that measure the cumulative impact of IPE training on interprofessional proficiency. The OIPE liaises with our interested collaborators and partners in scholarly activities. Learning opportunities for student researchers across the professional programs are also provided to further interprofessional education initiatives and facilitate knowledge translation.
