This chapter discusses the differences between interprofessional education (IPE) and interprofessional learning (IPL). The rationale, importance, and theoretical principles of IPE are presented. A range of logistical and system considerations are discussed in the context of simulation-based education with brief explanations as to how these considerations may enhance or inhibit effective delivery. It suggests that IPE should be an expectation in health education rather than an optional consideration in order to assist in truly improving patient safety.
