Interprofessional Collaboration & Education

The importance of Interprofessional Education & Collaboration

It is BCIT’s vision that by providing interprofessional education (IPE) to our students we will produce entry-level graduates who possess the required skills to work as interprofessional collaborators leading to improved patient safety and outcomes in our healthcare system and be “better prepared to respond to local health needs.” WHO 2010 [PDF]

By introducing the Canadian Interprofessional Health Collaborative (CIHC) Competency Framework For Advancing Collaboration [PDF] , BCIT grads, with their wide range of competency profiles will have the foundation necessary to be ambassadors of safety to prevent adverse events and promote and implement interprofessional care.

It is all about the persons receiving care

Persons receiving care and their care partners are an essential part of the interprofessional health care team.
