The Office of Interprofessional Education is represented on the IPE national scene as a member of the Canadian Interprofessional Healthcare Collaborative and remains active with dissemination of research activity at national and international venues.
Partnering with our stakeholders, the Office of Interprofessional Education remains committed to the advancement of evidence-based research in innovative interprofessional pedagogy to target competency development in team building skills. 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. Learning opportunities for student researchers across the professional programs are also provided to further interprofessional education initiatives and facilitate knowledge translation.
