Interprofessional Practice and Education contributes to the transformation of health care by identifying ways to improve health, enhance patient care, and control costs through integrating interprofessional practice and education. By rigorously aligning and integrating the needs and interests of health professions education with practice, the National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education aims to create a transformational “nexus” to incubate ideas, define the field, guide program development and research.
