Interprofessional Education/ Interprofessional Practice (IPE/IPP)

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.

Over 92% of audiologists and SLPs report that they are providing services to those who are receiving services from other health care or education service providers. This makes interprofessional teamwork a vital skill at any career stage. Interprofessional education (IPE) and interprofessional practice (IPP) are the pathway to effective collaboration and teaming.
