As audiologists and speech-language pathologists, our goal is always to help the people we serve. Increasingly, we can’t do that alone. Changes to health care and education have made working in teams and across specialties more important than ever.
With 95% of audiologists and SLPs participating in interprofessional education (IPE) or interprofessional practice (IPP), the ability to work on an interprofessional team is now a must-have skill—no matter at what point you are in your career.
IPE can range from a college class to a professional development workshop. But it always involves learning from and with people in other disciplines.
