"The real value of this book is as a highly practical guide for those individuals and organizations who are committed to making interprofessional education a reality... In addition to professional educators, leaders of health care systems themselves can learn from this book as they work to transform their structures and cultures to support teamwork around patients at the point of care, ideally reinforcing what new hires are learning in well-designed interprofessional education programs, rather than starting from scratch." - Jody Hoffer Gittel, ILR Reivew (August 2016) "Once again, the educational team from the University of Toronto is providing cutting-edge work. With interprofessional education and care sweeping across the United States, academic programs will be looking for a resource such as this to provide guidance for building their educational models. The quality of this work is outstanding. The authors combine up-to-date IPE scholarship with practical content expertise that will assist educators at they forge new IPE curricula and collaborative care learning opportunities for health profession students and clinicians alike."-Richard D. Kiovsky, Indiana University School of Medicine
