Healthcare professionals work not only within multidisciplinary teams but also with allied health and non-healthcare professionals. How to Succeed at Interprofessional Education is a practical introduction to the concepts of interprofessional education (IPE) within medicine. It provides the rationale and framework for the effective delivery of IPE in a range of health care contexts. The contents include definitions, the evidence that IPE is effective, and the principles to ensure successful delivery. A series of examples of IPE in different clinical settings is described that lead to improved decision making and improved clinical care for patients.
