Interprofessional Education in Canadian Nursing Programs and Implications for Continuing Education

Journal of Professional, Continuing and Online Education, v1 n1 2016
In 2010, the Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing, the accrediting body for nursing programs in Canada, became part of the Accreditation of Interprofessional Health Education initiative. In turn, interprofessional education (IPE) is now a requirement in nursing curricula. Although the requirement is formally in place, how it is achieved varies substantially. This paper explores how IPE has been integrated within Canadian nursing programs. Implications for the continuing education of nurses and other health professionals in order to achieve excellence in interprofessional practice are also considered.
