Recently, The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) has increased emphasis on Interprofessional Education and Interprofessional Practice, including it as a focused objective in ASHA's Envisioned Future: 2025 (ASHA, 2017a). Adopting the definition of the World Health Organization, ASHA has defined interprofessional education (IPE) as “an activity that occurs when two or more professions learn about, from, and with each other to enable effective collaboration and improve outcomes for individuals and families whom we serve” (ASHA, 2017b). In an effort to support and encourage IEP in the area of neurogenic communication disorders, SIG 2 Perspectives has worked to ensure the inclusion of IPE themes each year. This year we dedicate an IPE issue on Audiology.
