Interprofessional Education in Aged Care (IPEAC) Toolkit.

This toolkit has been developed specifically to guide residential aged care staff in conducting an IPE student placement at their facility. It uses learnings and experience from a research project specifically designed to evaluate their benefit in these settings.


An Interprofessional Education (IPE) student placement in an aged care setting promotes collaborative practice with other professions and allows students to learn more about the practical application of their role in a supportive and structured environment. This learning has been demonstrated to create an aged care workforce which can work efficiently and collaboratively for the benefit of residents.

Successful interprofessional education student placements within the aged care sector prepare students for the workforce and increase capacity of aged care facilities to enhance the care provided to residents.
