Communication in the healthcare field is critical but often happens in silos, which can lead to burnout and affect practitioners’ well-beings. But interprofessional education—a collaborative learning method—brings together two or more professions and provides a framework for employees to share a common purpose: a focus on patients’ and families’ needs. In this issue of TD at Work, Christina Barss and Angela J. Patchell detail:

  • what IPE is and why it is important to the healthcare profession

  • how to implement IPE and the associated benefits and challenges

  • how to sustain an IPE program.
