Abstract

Interprofessional Education (IPE) is defined as two or more professional learnings altogether to improve the collaboration and quality. The IPE is also a solution to the issue of professional fragmentation. Health faculties around the world already implement IPE into their curricula to improve of health care services. In contrary, University of Andalas is still on the planning stage to implement IPE where there is a necessity towards readiness data. This was a cross sectional quantitative study to assess the readiness of health faculty students toward the implementation IPE by using Readiness Interprofessional Learning Scale (RIPLS) as its instrument. A total of 756 students from health faculties at Andalas University, including eight majors in medical and health, were participated in this study. Mostly the subjects were female (84.39%) with the majority of age group between 20-24 years old (58.73). The students in every major mostly shown good readiness which imply that they are ready to implement IPE in their leaning. However, there was a student marked poor for readiness. For each domain in RIPLS, most students in every major also scored well. They shared similar opinion for each domain. This study could describe the profile of readiness towards IPE implementation. But, this study could not determine any related factors to students’ readiness.
