Abstract

Faculty development is essential to ensure effective interprofessional education and practice and to address the challenges of embedding interprofessional learning within health and social care professional curricula. Participating in interprofessional faculty development initiatives involves thinking outside personal professional boundaries and becoming a co-creator of interprofessional knowledge about education practices. Interprofessional faculty development should aim to support faculty members responsible for the written, delivered, and experienced curriculum, and help to align these with each other as closely as possible. Interprofessional faculty development is an on-going process of supporting and assisting the development of staff, shaped by the experiences of faculty members and students, theory, and current educational, health, and social care contexts.
