Abstract

An interprofessional approach to health care involves members of different health professions working together to evaluate health needs and provide care. Health care professionals must be trained to provide this specific type of care, and educating allied health students to provide interprofessional care presents a challenge. One promising approach to educating students about interprofessional care is participation in a community-based rehabilitation (CBR) model of health care provision. This paper describes the development and implementation of an international interprofessional education program with a CBR emphasis, and also describes future plans for this program.
