Inter-professional Education: an imperative for dental education
In partnership with:
According to the World Health Organization (WHO) the world is facing a shortage of healthcare workers. Additionally, many health systems throughout the world are fragmented and struggling to manage unmet health needs (WHO, 2010). The WHO and its numerous partners recognize inter-professional collaboration in both education and practice as an innovative strategy that will play an important role in mitigating the global health workforce crisis.
What does this increasing focus on inter-professional education and collaborative care mean for dental education? Why should dental schools be concerned with collaborative care? What are the key challenges to and strategies for implementing a successful IPE program?
Participants in this workshop will:
Understand changing trends in health care delivery models around the world and their impact on dental education and practice.
Discuss challenges and barriers to implementing IPE around the world.
Learn about successful models for introducing and assessing IPE programs.
