CAIPE Services


As  CAIPE is a virtual organisation our online services play a significant role in all our communication with members: individual, corporate, student and affiliated international members. 


CAIPE provides a range of interprofessional education workshops for teams, organisations and institutions, tailored to meet their specific requirements.


CAIPE provides organisations and institutions with advice, support and guidance on interprofessional matters according to their needs. 



CAIPE has a close, historic relationship with the international Journal of Interprofessional Care.

Through this link, CAIPE aims to ensure that its members are kept up to date with relevant research and publications. Find out more.  


Corporate membership entitles organisations and institutions to have representation on the CAIPE Corporate Network Forum: a corporate level community of practice, with the opportunity to be involved in developing CAIPE’s future strategies and representations to government.


This is a special event designed primarily for the benefit of, and free to individual members. There is a different theme each year.


Student Membership gives students  access to valuable resources, ensuring you stay up to date with developments in Interprofessional Education, through forums, publications an events.                      

CAIPE Comment

It is important that CAIPE responds to the many policy and professional documents that have been published by the government, as it sets out its political agenda. CAIPE members play a significant role in shaping these responses, by their willingness to read and contribute their views.
