Message from the LAU-IPE Chair
Welcome to LAU’s Interprofessional Education (IPE) Program that describes the Lebanese American University (LAU)’s approach to IPE, and the available opportunities for learners and educators to be involved in interprofessional work. LAU’s health and social care programs have been collaborating in interdisciplinary research, and are committed to further advancing interprofessional learning and patient-centered collaborative practice.
Through alignment of different curricular and educational goals, students from various health and social care professions interact and learn together about the values of interprofessional communication and collaboration, and the roles and responsibilities of their respective disciplines. Students engage in structured educational and learning activities that equip them with the knowledge, skills and attributes to become future effective members of the interprofessional healthcare teams, help improve patient care delivery in Lebanon, and be actively responsive to the community health needs.
