      Becque, Jessica; Turcotte, Jill (2021-04-10)
      The American Occupational Therapy Association (2020) identifies interprofessional collaboration as best practice, yet research suggests occupational therapy practitioners are confronted with barriers impacting professional collaboration (Delahunt et al., 2018; Orentlicher et al., 2019). Interprofessional Education is a dynamic group process enabling interprofessional collaboration by outlining strategies to support collaboration in practice with the goal of improving client outcomes (World Health Organization, 2010, p. 7). Interprofessional education may be a platform to engage professionals from other disciplines and facilitate interprofessional collaboration to improve student outcomes (Orentlicher et al., 2019; van Dongen et al., 2016).
