Abstract

Health and social care providers are expected to work collaboratively with patients and community partners, to deliver efficient health and social care. Yet each discipline has its own distinct body of knowledge and discipline-specific training which leads to professionals who don't necessarily understand how to work together efficiently. It is within this context that the Consortium national de formation en santé (CNFS) designed, developed, delivered, and evaluated an e-learning continuing education program to train interprofessional champions across Canada. These champions can then act as role models and help stimulate interprofessional practices in their workplace. The French-language e-learning program examines the concepts of interprofessional practice and then brings learners to develop an action plan based on an individualised conceptual map. Study results show that e-learning is a desirable approach to interprofessional education (IPE) and that course workload must be carefully assessed, communicated and managed when offered in a not for credit continuing education context.
