Interprofessional education in Denmark

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftsartikelForskningpeer review


Denmark has a tradition of interprofessional collaboration between the health, social work and teaching professions in many settings, dating back to the early 1960’s. Collaboration has been enshrined in law, mostly in order to prevent the exclusion of people with social, physical or other disabilities and to improve the efficiency of service delivery. Interprofessional education (IPE) has been required by law since 2001 for entrants to the health professions (including nurses, midwifes, physiotherapists and occupational therapists), since 2002 to social work and since 2007 for school teaching and social education
