  1. What is the difference between interprofessional and interdisciplinary

Answers

1. What is the difference between interprofessional and interdisciplinary?

A discipline is an academic branch of knowledge such as medicine, nursing, respiratory therapy, physiotherapy, occupational therapy etc. Interdisciplinary means that two or more disciplines work or learn together to solve a problem or gather information. Interprofessional describes the relationship between various disciplines as they purposely interact to work and learn together to achieve a common goal. For example, if a client has trouble swallowing, nurse, speech language pathologists and dieticians need to work together as a team to figure out what is wrong and how to help the client (University of Toronto, 2008).
