Resource Type: 

The evaluations described in this chapter have highlighted the need to have a better understanding of the long-term effect and outcomes of IPE programmes as a whole. From an institutional perspective these results are important for the maintenance of funding streams to support IPE programmes. From a health system perspective these may indicate where resources can be best allocated to achieve goals for the workforce. In addition, evaluations have raised questions that require further exploration or development and testing of new or modified IPE programmes. This includes the place, balance, benefits and disadvantages of different IPE activities, further development of communities of health educators and the balance of classroom workshop, simulation activities and real-time clinical experiences.
