Interprofessional Training for Optometric Learners

25 January 2019

Abstract

Healthcare systems have become increasingly complex due to technology, medical advances, socioeconomic divides, and provider specialization. With these changes, there is a growing need for collaborative healthcare practice to avoid gaps in care delivery.

In order to best train future providers, interprofessional models have been proposed as a method of bridging healthcare gaps. Optometry is one of many professions that is starting to embrace interprofessional care. The purpose of this review is to assess the viability of interprofessional education as part of a core optometry curriculum based on substantiated data that such efforts are necessary in healthcare delivery.
