The Interprofessional Education and Practice (IPE/P) Special Interest Group welcomes all AGS members to explore how broad health professional interest in collaboration is changing health education and practice. While geriatrics has long recognized the importance of teams, this has not been a widely recognized focus of health education or practice until recently Interprofessional education refers to when “two or more professionals learn about, from and with each other to enable effective  collaboration and improve health outcomes” (WHO, 2010). Please join us to explore opportunities to advance geriatric care and collaborative practice with new educational initiatives, curricula, and models of care.
