The World Health
Organization (WHO,
2010) recognises that
interprofessional learning
(IPL) in education institutes
is an innovative strategy
in mitigating the health
workforce crisis and
improving patient outcomes.
Almost 50 years of evidence
has enabled the WHO and
its partners to conclude that
IPL is a part of education
that will shape an effective
and collaborative workforce,
which will ultimately
support local health needs.
Furthermore, Barr et al
(2014) highlighted that IPL
should be embedded across
university programmes,
in order to maximise the
learning experiences of
healthcare students.
