An Anatomy of Continuing Interprofessional Education
Barr, Hugh
Journal of Continuing Education in the Health Professions, v29 n3 p147-150 Sum 2009
Continuing interprofessional education is the means by which experienced health, social care, and other practitioners learn with, from, and about each other, formally and informally, to improve their collective practice and to cultivate closer collaboration. It applies principles of interprofessional education through media commonly employed in continuing professional education grounded in team-based practice. Among many approaches, it may be enriched by guided or self-directed reading, by open, distance, or e-learning, and during workshops, seminars, conferences, or courses. No one medium is preferable; nor are they mutually exclusive. Each complements the others. Subsequent articles in this issue put flesh on these bones. (Contains 1 table.)
