The changing landscape of health care continues to grow more diverse. As young health professionals move into clinical practice and face challenging health demands and increasing health care costs, they must be prepared to work in interprofessional teams despite a lack of experience in team-based skills. Interprofessional Healthcare: Education and Practice for Rural and Underserved Populations represents a collective response to this problem from educators, clinicians, and community health leaders to create a resource for interprofessional education and practice. Divided into five sections, this book includes the necessary information to encourage dialogue, debate, and action in interprofessional education needed to meet the health care needs for the present and the future.
