A growing body of work has shown that interprofessional practice and education (IPE) can improve learners’ perceptions of interprofessional practice (IPP) and enhance collaborative knowledge and skills. In contrast, establishing a direct cause-and-effect relationship between IPE and patient, population and system outcomes has proven more difficult – not unlike other health professional educational interventions.

This was the task of the recent IOM consensus study committee charged with analyzing the available data and information from around the world to determine the best methods for measuring the impact of IPE on such issues as patient safety, provider and patient satisfaction, quality of care, community health outcomes and cost savings. .

In this , the chair of the consensus committee, Malcolm Cox, MD, outlined key findings from the report and discussed actions that interprofessional stakeholders can take to better measure the impact of IPE on intermediate and distal outcomes.  

Dr. Cox, and other study committee members, will use this forum to respond to questions about the report and to engage in additional dialogue about its findings and recommendations.
