The Centre for the Advancement of Interprofessional Education

Collaborative practice through learning together to work together

CAIPE Strategy 2022-2027

Over the next 5 years, CAIPE will pursue its evidence-based support and guidance to our members, higher education institutions, healthcare commissioners and regulators, professional bodies, and national education bodies. We will do this to promote and sustain the growth of interprofessional education and collaborative practice while also working to influence health and social care policy for the improvement of health outcomes for all.

This strategy was developed by the CAIPE Board and Leadership Group after an extensive consultation of CAIPE members and partners to show how we plan to address the needs of our stakeholders.

CAIPE's definition of interprofessional education:


"Occasions when two or more professions learn with, from and about each other to improve collaboration and the quality of care." (Barr, 2002)
