Dr. Ruby Grymonpre is a professor at the College of Pharmacy, University of Manitoba,
Canada. Ruby’s current interest in Interprofessional Education and Collaborative
Practice stems from over 25 years of experience in ‘Geriatric Pharmacy’ where her
clinical practice and scholarly works involved an exploration of medication management
issues in older adults and provided evidence to support the role of pharmacists on
interprofessional geriatric teams. The receipt of a $1.1 million Health Canada grant for
the project entitled: “Interprofessional Education in Geriatric Care” in 2005 marked a
turning point in Ruby’s career. Between 2008-2015 Ruby was the Interprofessional
Education Coordinator for the University of Manitoba. She was actively involved in the
Health Canada funded Accreditation of Interprofessional Health Education (AIPHE)
project, serving as the educator consultant and co-chair. Ruby has been a Steering
Committee member of the Canadian Interprofessional Health Collaborative (CIHC)
since its inception in 2005, a co-chair to the CIHC Evaluation subcommittee, and is
currently appointed to the Board of the CIHC. She represents the CIHC on the World
Interprofessional Education and Interprofessional Collaboration Coordinating
Committee (WCC). Most recently she has been appointed as a Reference Member to the
“Securing an Interprofessional Future for Australian Health Professional Education and
Practice” project. Ruby continues to attract peer reviewed funding in interprofessional
education (IPE) and collaborative practice (IPC) and publishes and presents her
scholarly works on such topics as IPE program evaluation, IP practice education, faculty
development in IPE, and IPE for internationally educated health professionals.
