      The value in interprofessional, collaborative-ready nutrition and dietetics practitioners.
      called attention to the value of incorporating collaborative-ready nutrition and dietetics practitioners into the workforce. At that time, minimal IPE standards for the profession had been set and few nutrition and dietetics education programs were formally integrating IPE into their curricula. Since then, the overall landscape of IPE has moved from a primary focus of implementation to building bridges between education and practice.
