Welcome to the blog – created to explore healthcare policies related to Interprofessional Education (IPE) and Inteprofessional Practice (IPP) with a specific focus on the scope of practice for IPE Preceptors. The concept of IPE/IPP in healthcare is based on the premise that though working together across disciplines healthcare providers can improve patient safety, decrease the cost of healthcare, and provide better care for patients. The issue is complex, and I have provided some resources to assist you in understanding this blog. This information will be updated as more posts are made. I also look forward to any comments about resources you may find helpful.
