Clay Graybeal, Ph.D., Dale Scalise-Smith, Ph.D., Richard Long, Ph.D. and Elizabeth Zeibig, Ph.D. gave a presentation in San Antonio at the annual meeting of ASAHP - the Association of Schools of Allied Health Professions - October 21-23, entitled "The Art and Science of Interprofessional Education."  Interprofessional Education, or IPE, is a core element of health professions education.   Its primary function is to enhance collaboration in health care teams and systems, with the ultimate goal of improving the health and well-being of our patients and clients. This session summarizes findings from a survey of best practices at progressive institutions in the U.S. and Canada, and provides recommendations for those interested in developing or improving IPE programming.
