Everyone will understand their individual and collective impact on the patient's journey; and will learn and teach as a team.
Learning collaboratively, sometimes referred to as Interprofessional Education, occurs when two or more health care workers learn about, from and with each other. Collaborative learning opportunities in turn enable effective team collaboration, which improves health outcomes1
In 2010 the World Health Organization released a “Framework for Action” that provided strategies to implement collaborative learning2
Learning collaboratively has been shown to increase respect, eliminate stereotypes and facilitates patient-centered practice2
Interprofessional simulation is a useful strategy for educators to implement collaborative learning in health profession programs4
