Interprofessional Education Matters!

RU Interprofessional would like to welcome you to Interprofessional Education Matters!, an interprofessional workshop created for Faculty of Community Services students, staff and faculty members.

The workshops focus on interprofessional competencies, such as team functioning, communication, conflict resolution, client-centered care, role clarification and collaborative leadership. These competencies have been identified by the PDF fileCanadian Interprofessional Health Collaborative, external link as highlighting the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values that shape the judgments essential for interprofessional collaborative practice.

The workshops are lead by Ryerson faculty and by community partners engaged in interprofessional collaboration. 

Questions related to the IPE Matters! series should be directed to IPE project manager Sanne Kaas-Mason at
