Interprofessional education (IPE) involves members of two or more health and social work professions engaged in learning with, from and about each other to improve collaboration and quality of care. In the 1960s, IPE has started to be taught in the United Kingdom (England, Scotlang, Wales and Northern Ireland). Over the world the majority of the prestigous universities had incorporated IPE into their health and social work curriculums and they have begun to teach IPE as compulsory course at graduate and postgraduate levels. It is predicted that if IPE programmes started in Turkey, health and social work students will learn side by side and will be able to use their abilities more effectively and work collaboratively by raising their awareness and capabilities. The possibility of joining the well established European Interprofessional Education Network and modernising Turkish universities further is closely linked with the implementation of IPE curriculum which consists of collaborative principles in social and health care. Intrinsically, IPE enables health and social care students to obtain problem solving skills. The aim of this study is to emphasize the importance of incorporating IPE into Turkish universities' curriculum by reviewing and explaining the principles of IPE.
Keywords: Interprofessional education (IPE), collaborative practice, health and social work curriculum, group work.
