Across all sectors of health and social care there is a growing need for collaboration between professionals, agencies, providers and above all with the people they seek to serve. The significant challenge is how to create, within the existing and future workforce, the capability to work in multi professional teams capable of effective collaboration.

The intention of this paper is to explore the implications that multi- or more specifically interprofessional learning may have for collaboration within primary care. As part of this, the state of the current evidence base regarding this form of learning will be explored. However, just as this way of learning is but one element in a wider picture of health care, so the focus will also include the implications for a workforce relevant to future primary care.
