Abstract

There is an international consensus that interprofessional education and other health reforms are necessary to address the increasingly complex needs of patients. Students have organized programs worldwide to move forward on this important issue, despite the many barriers they have faced in implementing them. This study will look at what draws students to interprofessional education and other reform initiatives and how this interest can be stimulated further. This study is the first of its kind to outline ways to attract students to reform initiatives and will help define steps forward to make these programs even more attractive to students and enlist their help building health care solutions for the future.

Keywords: interprofessional education, consensus, students, reform, health care, barriers, patient needs, leadership
