IPE Support Innovation Fund Grant-in-Aid Reporting Format

During 2016-2018, the IPE Centre offered contestable grant-funding to support the innovation, development and implementation of interprofessional student learning activities across established health professional degree programmes.

Grant-holders making their final reports are required to use the format below.  Grant-holders submitting interim reports are asked to refer to the content of this format to guide reporting, but are not obliged to use the template at interim stage.

From 2019, the IPE Centre will support consolidation of IPE activities, and integrated IPE curriculum development across the health professional programmes, through discretionary funding, as guided by IPE governance structures at Divisional and campus levels.

If you have any questions, please contact IPE Centre Manager, Ashley Symes:
