In this presentation I will look back over three decades of research into and evaluation of interprofessional education and collaborative practice (IPECP) from a practical perspective – what does this all mean for health professionals and educators? I will discuss current projects and areas of interest, comparing work being undertaken globally, before considering what we need to focus on in the next few years. The opportunities and difficulties of working across professional and disciplinary boundaries will be highlighted, as well as the need to establish a common language in this field. The session will be interactive and I hope will challenge us to see things differently.
