The authors consider in this literature review that the collaboration skill is one of the most needed skills in the 21st century which can be improved through collaborative learning. To ensure the notion, they outline how Interprofessional Education (IPE) can reach and fulfil the standardised approach in learning and they offer a short, dense and clear perspective of the learning method applied in health sciences as the example of collaborative learning. The authors also consider that the basic characteristic of IPE which is allowing students from two or more disciplines to learn and study together provides a glimpse of how a collaborative learning can be implemented in higher education. Thereafter, they highlight and exemplify how collaborative approach in IPE can improve and bring out the collaboration skills in students.
