Ethics and Interprofessionalism in Medical Education

In 2015, the Institute of Medicine released Measuring the Impact of Interprofessional Education (IPE) on Collaborative Practice and Patient Outcomes. In the opening sentence of this report’s summary, IPE is defined as happening when health professions trainees learn “with, from, and about each other to improve collaboration and the delivery of care.” This month’s theme issue considers the roles of medicine in motivating the clinical and ethical benefits of interprofessionalism for both health professionals and patients.
