The Centre for the Advancement of Interprofessional Education.
What is CAIPE?
CAIPE is the leading organisation in the UK for Interprofessional Education and Collaborative Practice (IPECP). Established in 1987, CAIPE is a UK-based charity with international outreach whose members (individuals, service users, students and corporate organisations) work together to promote and develop the health and wellbeing of individuals, families and communities through interprofessional education, collaborative practice and related research facilitating the development of a workforce fit for purpose.
It is an independent ‘think tank’, accountable and responsible for its actions, dependent on funding from members’ subscriptions and income generation. It aspires to be a national and international authoritative voice respected equally by governments, academia and in the workplace.
CAIPEdefines interprofessional education as “occasions when two or more professions learn with, from and about each other to improve collaboration and the quality of care (CAIPE 2002).” Extending CAIPE’s definition we recognise interprofessional education as occasions when members or students of two or more professions learn with, from and about each other to improve collaboration and the quality of care and services (Statement of Purpose CAIPE 2016). Applying that definition, CAIPE works to improve quality in education, practice and the organisation and delivery of health and social care services:
Working with statutory and independent, professional and regulatory bodies locally, nationally and internationally;
Assembling and disseminating information;
Running conferences and workshops;
CAIPE supports students, educators, practitioners, researchers and users of services inviting those who opt to be its members (individuals, services users, students or corporate organisations) to:
Engage in mutual support;
Access online interprofessional national and international resources through publications, including the Journal of Interprofessional of Care;
Contribute to CAIPE’s work through its Working Groups;
Respond with CAIPE to opportunities to influence policy and practice;
Access funding opportunities.
CAIPE works with likeminded organisations to further these objectives at home and abroad (see). It is one of a growing number of networks confederating in Interprofessional.Global (IP.G) which subscribes to the same ideals worldwide and oversees the biennial All Together Better Health (ATBH) conferences see.
CAIPE commends the following values where interprofessional education and collaborative practice:
Focuses on the needs of individuals, families and communities to improve their quality of care, health outcomes and wellbeing;
Applies equal opportunities within and between the professions and all with whom they learn and work;
Respects individuality, difference and diversity within and between the professions and all with whom they learn and work;
Sustains the identity and expertise of each profession;
Promotes parity between professions in the learning environment;
Instils interprofessional values and perspectives throughout uniprofessional and multiprofessional learning.
striving for excellence in collaborative education, research and practice;
contributing to vibrant communities of practice;
furthering innovation, creativity and diversity;
empowering its members to bring about change.

Susanne is Director of the Centre for Interprofessional Practice (CIPP) and Professor of Interprofessional Practice. She is also Director of Learning and Teaching Quality for Norwich Medical School at the University of East Anglia (UEA). Susanne is since 2016 proud to be a CAIPE Fellow and together with likeminded colleagues work towards a vision where “all professionals put interprofessional practice at the heart of their service by providing integrated and high quality care that is person-centred, compassionate, efficient and safe”.
Susanne joined CIPP in 2002, initially to set up a pilot with healthcare students. The purpose of the initiative was to give students an opportunity to learn with, from and about each other allowing them to develop knowledge, skills, attitudes, values and behaviour that underpin effective interprofessional practice and high quality care. The initial pilot turned out to be a success and as a result she was asked to extend IPL to involve all health and social care students. In 2016-2017 CIPP offered a number of different opportunities of IPL to ~ 3000 students across twelve different professions. From 2017-18 delivery of pre-registration IPL transitioned to schools with Susanne as CIPP Director taking on the role of supporting the ongoing development and quality assurance of the provision of IPL at UEA.
Since 2018, Susanne and CIPP will work with the local Trusts in meeting the increasing needs and expectations of our future healthcare practitioners by promoting networking and innovation in interprofessional practice - in teaching and research. Working together with others both locally, nationally and internationally has been a key ingredient in CIPP’s and Susanne’s approach to finding the best way forward in the joint attempt at providing meaningful opportunities for learning and working together that lead to real improvements in patient/client care. Susanne is currently undertaking a training to become an accredited coach for senior leaders so that she can actively help promote the overall aim of CIPP by supporting people to develop and optimise their leadership skills.
