Humphris, Debra and Hean, Sarah (2004) Educating the future workforce: building the evidence about interprofessional learning Journal of Health Services Research and Policy, 9, supplement 1, pp. 24-27. (doi:10.1258/135581904322724103).

Record type: Article


This paper addresses the theme of interprofessional education for health and social care professionals as it effects on the development of the work force. The drivers for change in the UK, typified by the Bristol Royal Infirmary and Victoria Climbié inquiries and the response to this in the form of Department of Health policy, are discussed. The need for rapid development of the evidence base around this subject is evident form literature reviews of the impact of interprofessional education. Directions for future research and investment in this area are proposed including the need for a stronger theoretical base and for longitudinal studies over extended periods of time in order to examine short, medium and long term outcomes in relation to health care practice.
