Interprofessional Education and Training 2nd Edn.

John Carpenter, Helen Dickinson

Research output: Book/ReportAuthored book


The idea that professionals in health and social care should ‘learn together to work together’ in ‘interprofessional education’ (IPE) – is not new. Nevertheless, interest in this concept has grown dramatically over the last 15 years or so. By learning together professions will better understand each other and value what others bring to the practice of collaboration. Ultimately, through working together more effectively, the quality of care and outcomes for service users will be improved. But, what is the evidence to support this proposition? How can effective and sustainable IPE programmes be designed and run? What theoretical perspectives are useful? How can programmes be evaluated?
This essential guide provides a thorough introduction to IPE in health and social care. It examines the research on IPE in detail, providing much-needed practical advice. This second edition includes updates to research and policy internationally, examples of successful programmes and methods of evaluation and provides readers with an essential set of IPE ‘do’s and don’ts’.
