Background

Inter-Professional Health Education (IPHE) has been recognized as foundational to achieve safe, high quality, accessible, patient-centered care. An Interprofessional Health Education Collaborative (IPHEC) formed to develop common domains and to define domain competencies for interprofessional health education

Interprofessional education often remains a scientific debate between health educators and professionals in Indonesia, and has not been implemented as a policy to integrate IPHE into health professional education curriculum in Indonesia, especially at Hasanuddin University. Therefore, it is necessary to formulate a recommendation for the development of IPHE at Hasanuddin University for seven health professions (pharmacy, medicine, dentistry, nursing, midwifery, public health and nutrition) as a first step to make the IPHE as a policy that requires a firm foundation. Based on this background, there will be a workshop and conference to address the global challenges of the health care system, especially related to the curriculum, research, the need for teamwork and interprofessional collaboration practices.

The conference will be supported by German Academic Exchange Services (DAAD). and Hasanuddin University. The conference will discuss a range of critically important issues and themes relating to the interprofessional health education, research and collaboration practices. The core competencies for interprofessional practice developed by the interprofessional health colaborative, were used as the foundation on which to begin the discussion and strategizing healthcare.
