Health Systems Research Seminar : Here, There & Everywhere: Musing on Interprofessional Education

Wednesday, January 18, 2017, 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

In this presentation I shall share some thoughts on impediments to, and facilitators for, interprofessional education for collaborative patient centred practice. At this stage in its development interprofessional education, interprofessional care and interprofessional practice are confronted with a number of difficult questions, few example: What are the problems confronting curricula across the health professions; who should be teaching whom; where is the preceptor in practice education; what are the roles of technologies, and where should research be heading?

About the Speaker

Dr. John Gilbert has been a seminal leader in the education of health professionals in British Columbia, Canada and internationally. In the early part of his career he pioneered linguistics and psychology as the basis of practice for speech-language pathologists and audiologists. In the latter part of his career it was his vision and leadership that led to the concept of interprofessional education being developed as a central tenet of team-based collaborative patient-centred practice and care. These concepts are now part of university, college, and institute health sciences training in many places across Canada, and globally.

He was elected a Fellow, Canadian Academy of Health Sciences, in 2008. He was awarded the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal in April 2012, and was appointed a Member of the Order of Canada, in July 2011 for his leadership in the development of interprofessional education as a central tenet in team-based collaborative patient-centered practice and care, nationally and globally. He received a Doctor of Laws, honoris causa, from Dalhousie University in May 2016.
