The growth of global health has a number of implications for interprofessional education and practice. This workshop examines the emergence of a global health agenda and how new forms of collaboration are needed for enhancing education and the delivery of care. Two case studies – one from Africa and one from Latin America – will illustrate the interprofessional issues. 

During this workshop, participants will:

  • Engage in an interactive presentation focusing on the development of global health and its implications for interprofessional education and practice.
  • Participate in a case-based small group activity that explores the interprofessional issues that arise when delivering care in two different settings - Africa and Latin America.
  • Reflect upon the small group work in a plenary discussion.

At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the interprofessional education and practice implications within a global health context.
  • Understand the interprofessional education and practice issues for delivering care in poor countries.

This workshop is one in a 12-part series covering fundamental issues in interprofessional education and practice. Workshops need not be taken in sequence.
