Overview: CME/CPD programs are increasingly offering activities to enhance skills, knowledge and behaviours designed to promote effective interprofessional communication, teamwork and collaboration. This presentation explores pertinent issues related to how health professionals can learn together to improve their ability to collaborate, communicate and coordinate their services to support the delivery of effective team-based care. Particular emphasis will be placed on the importance of determining the barriers and facilitators to interprofessional teamwork as an essential precursor to the development and implementation of interprofessional CPD teamwork interventions.
