WHO Framework for Action on Interprofessional Education and Collaborative Practice

http://www.who.int/hrh/resources/framework_action/en/

  • World Health Organization (WHO) 2010 publication on “innovative strategies . . . to bolster the global health workforce.”
  • Provides commonly cited definition of interprofessional education as: 

“Interprofessional education occurs when students from two or more professions learn about, from, and with each other to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes. Once students understand how to work interprofessionally, they are ready to enter the workplace as a member of the collaborative practice team. This is a key step in moving health systems from fragmentation to a position of strength.”
