Membership of WAIPE is open to individuals and institutions, but requires a degree of recognised expertise and quality.
Individuals need to have at least 10 years active experience in interprofessional practice, research, teaching, training or consultancy, and they still need to be professionally active. To obtain the level of senior expert, a portfolio of publications, presentations at conferences, and/or developed tools is required. When active as a trainer or consultant, at least 5 years of experience in IP practice or in IP education is required. Institutions can apply to be recognized as centers of expertise when they have established a profound and continuous IP clinical or educational practice as a team for at least 10 years and if this practice still continues. This can be on the level of a department or service unit. Please contact us if you want to be part of this and apply for membership.
