Interprofessional education is a distillation of the investment made by the participating professions- medicine, nursing, allied health, social work and others- each instilling its values, knowledge and skills accompanied by its preferred learning methods during a continuous process of negotiation and accommodation. This paper focuses on the contribution made in the UK by medicine -showcasing general practice as befits the occasion.
It distinguishes between three phases:
- the pioneering phase from 1966 to 1999 during which doctors led many of the early ‘initiatives’;
- the promotional phase from 2000 to 2009 during which medicine sometimes seemed disconcerted;
- the prospective phase entering uncharted waters.
