Librarians and medical educators will be well-positioned to lead the future of IPE with the tools presented in this book. Current and experienced IPE instructors could also benefit from reviewing assessment and evaluation methods, learning how others have overcome challenges, and gaining a solid foundation in IPE's underlying theories. It would be an excellent addition to any medical library. * Medical Reference Services Quarterly *
Edwards provides a concise description of interprofessional education (IPE) and its importance for healthcare professionals as well as their patients.... The book is logically organized as each chapter author(s) builds on the information provided in the previous chapters. The language used is concise and easily understood by the reader. Examples and case studies are used to illuminate the applicability of the concepts being discussed and the information provided is supported by substantive references and, in some cases, demonstrated using figures and tables. This book is an excellent resource for librarians and medical educators alike. The overview of IPE and the barriers the reader may encounter are clearly articulated. The techniques and resources provided are both relevant and applicable in diverse contexts. * Journal of Interprofessional Care *
Interprofessional Education and Medical Libraries: Partnering for Success is an excellent primer for faculty, administrators, and librarians considering implementing IPE or expanding their IPE offerings. I believe it also provides a valued refresher for experienced IPE practitioners. The chapter on organizational change is particularly useful because implementing IPE can prove to be quite challenging for institutions.The case studies offer practical examples that could serve as models for other institutions -- David A. Nolfi, Health Sciences Librarian and Library Assessment Coordinator, Gumberg Library, Duquesne University
Interprofessional Education and Medical Libraries, edited by Mary Edwards, MLS, EdD, provides insight on many of the dimensions that comprise interprofessional education. Chapters offer historical perspectives, underlying theory, pedagogies, practical application, assessment and rich descriptions of hands-on experiences. Each of these dimensions includes contexts such as inclusion of medical libraries, patient safety, service learning in the community and the humanities. This volume is critical to those interested in rounding out their understanding of IPE, and in particular those who want to plan one or more IPE activities in their learning environment. -- Casey B. White, Harrison Distinguished Teaching Associate Professor & Associate Dean for Medical Education Research and Instruction, University of Virginia
