The Institute of Technology Tralee has embraced interprofessional education and practice and since the launch of CAIPE IRL in 2007, we have provided annual conferences and/or workshops for professionals in academia and practice. The first PhD on interprofessional collaboration in residential services was awarded in 2011. We aim to provide a Masters in Interprofessional Practice in September 2012.
