Structured IPE Placement — Collaborative Learning and Practice

The structured IPE placement provides students from a variety of professions (e.g. Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Medicine, Social Work, Pharmacy, Speech-Language Pathology, Dietetics, etc.), who are presently involved in their own profession-specific clinical placement, with the opportunity to participate in an interprofessional learning experience.

Through a series of five interactive sessions, students from a variety of professions and academic institutions will be introduced to the concept of interprofessional education and collaboration (IPE/IPC). Overlapping and unique professional roles will be examined including effective collaborative skills necessary for the provision of interprofessional patient- and family-centered care.

This educational opportunity meets University of Toronto's Centre for IPE criteria for a core activity.
