Abstract

Interprofessional education (IPE) approach allows learners from different health professions viz. – medical, dental, nursing, physiotherapy, psychotherapy, psychology etc., learn from, learn with, and learn about, each other. The scope of learning depends upon the requirements and curriculum. Interprofessional education can help in creating a workforce that learns to perform collaborative practice thereby ensuring better health-care outcomes. Medical educators’ and practitioners’ understanding about teaching, learning, and assessment of IPE is rudimentary. Strategies to incorporate IPE in regular curricula need to be debated and barriers associated with its implementation require to be identified. This review highlights the teaching-learning and assessment tools for IPE and discusses potential challenges in its implementation.
