High quality affordable healthcare

An ageing workforce
Shift from problem orientend to goal oriented primary care
Interprofessional education (IPE) occurs when two or more professions learn with, from and about each other to improve collaboration and the quality of care. (CAIPE, 2002)
“...includes all such learning in academic and work based settings before and after qualification, adopting an inclusive view of "professional".
The Lancet Report (2010) focuses on ‘transformative learning’as to - prepare not only scientists or professionals, but- also prepare ‘change agents’
‘triple-loop learning’ (Argyris) is effective on three levels:
learning from action
learning from thinking
learning from wanting and thus get the feel you are the owner of change.
- define and teach interprofessional competencies
make it part of the learning process, engage students of different professions in interactive learning with each other
build on each profession’s expected disciplinary competencies
to work effectively as members of clinical teams while students is seen as fundemental
learning together enhances future working together
IPE fosters positive interaction among different professions
IPE improves attitudes towards other professionals
IPE initiatives are diverse
good evaluation methodology and data are limited
professional accreditation organizations mandate only for their own professions
Make multidisciplinary accreditation for joint efforts possible
the way the educational system is constructed
hard to come to agreements on interprofessional and multidisciplinary educational program
cultural differences between the professions, each focusing on their own domain (silo)
focus more on communication and collaboration between professionals
make better use of existing integrated settings for IPE (act as change agents)
Legal & financial barriers
Hungary: practice nurse, 15 years experience in primary care = still illegal
Italy: gp’s & nurses teams for chronic diseases, works fine, financing stopped = teams stopped
Switzerland: there must be a need for cooperation = too many patients, not enough doctors
“Interprofessional partnerships with shared accountability arrangements for the delivery of services to a defined population”
develop a shared understanding
gather good examples, practice based evidence
national and international literature
to further identify supportive and detracting indicators
develop mutual power of change
put lessons into practice
Cultural / personal level

Jan van Es Institute: Netherlands Expert Centre for Integrated Primary CareMissionThe Jan van Es Institute is the independent centre of expertise of integrated primary care that bridges the gap between science and practice. It focuses on continuously improving, translating and disseminating knowledge, about the organisation of integrated primary and community-oriented health care. The goal is to achieve better coherence in care, in order to obtain better outcomes for patients, professionals and society.VisionThe Jan van Es Institute contributes to expand and disseminate existing and new knowledge based on scientific and practical research. Lessons learnt based on practical experience are translated into new research questions and knowledge. The generated knowledge is transformed into practical tools for care providers, purchasers of care, policy makers and patients / consumers.www.jvei.nlFor the international embedding there is a cooperation with the European Forum for Primary Care; wwwl.euprimarycare.org
