Educating for the Health Team:  this report came out of the first IOM Conference in 1972 on "Interrelationships of Educational Programs for Health Professionals", where 120 leaders from allied health, dentistry, medicine, nursing and pharmacy considered key questions at the forefront of  contemporary national discussions about interprofessional education.

Interprofessional Education, Research and Practice


"The goal of this interprofessional learning is to prepare all health professions students for deliberatively working together with the common goal of building a safer and better patient-centered and community/population oriented U.S. health care system".

(Core Competencies for Interprofessional Collaborative Practice: Report of an expert panel. Washington, D.C.: Interprofessional Education Collaborative, May 2011, p. 3).

Interprofessional Education: "When students from two or more professions learn about, from and with each other to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes" (WHO 2010)

Interprofessional Collaborative Practice"When multiple health workers from different professional backgrounds work together with patients, families, carers, and communities to deliver the highest quality of care". (WHO, 2010)

Interprofessional Team-based Care: Care delivered by intentionally created, usually relatively small work groups in health care, who are recognized by others as well as by themselves as having a collective identity and shared responsibility for a patient or group of patients, e.g. rapid response team, palliative care team, primary care team, operating room team.
