Core Interprofessional Modules

The Core Interprofessional Modules cover the foundational knowledge of team-based care and collaborative practice. The modules use a case-based learning approach with realistic scenarios of patients and families seen in a variety of primary care settings. General categories of interprofessional competencies, such as knowledge of team members’ roles, communication and conflict-management strategies, are embedded in actual primary care situations and decisions.

Note: The Core Interprofessional Modules were updated in 2020 to include Instructional Companion Guides and Certificates of Completion.
