Theme: Theoretical quality and competence in Interprofessional and

In this workshop, we explore the importance of a rigorous theoretical framework to promote the effective development, implementation, evaluation and research of collaborative practice (IPC) and interprofessional education (IPE). By the end of the session, participants should be ready to seek out, articulate and apply relevant theories to their own personal narratives of collaboration as well as their developing research studies.
