Interprofessional Education/Interprofessional Practice (IPE/IPP)

ASHA adapted the World Health Organization [PDF] definitions of interprofessional education (IPE) and interprofessional practice (IPP), also called interprofessional collaborative practice, to reflect audiologists' and speech-language pathologists' (SLPs') engagement in IPP in both health care and education settings. In ASHA's definition, IPE is an activity that occurs when two or more professions learn about, from, and with each other to enable effective collaboration and improve outcomes for individuals and families whom we serve. Similarly, IPP occurs when multiple service providers from different professional backgrounds provide comprehensive healthcare or educational services by working with individuals and their families, caregivers, and communities- to deliver the highest quality of care across settings.
