Abstract

Date Presented 04/06/19

Interprofessional education (IPE) is increasingly emphasized in educational curricula. Despite this, variation exists regarding methods for implementation and delivery of such content. As such, development of course content emphasizing interprofessional collaboration in OT education is critical. Results following an IPE course among students from three professional disciplines demonstrate increased knowledge of teamwork and collaborative care.
