Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Psychological practitioners need to be able to work together collaboratively with other health professionals to deliver high quality cost-effective care. This entails transformation in care delivery, interprofessional collaborative practice (IPCP), and training in interprofessional education (IPE). This article reviews interprofessionalism in terms of both interprofessional collaborative practice and interprofessional education, and the influence of these interrelated movements on practice and training, identifies challenges inherent in IPCP and IPE, examines cultural and ethical considerations, discusses clinical implications and future directions, and issues a call to action for psychologists to become leaders in IPE, IPCP, and related research.
