This review of pre-registration interprofessional education in the United Kingdom over the fifteen year period 1997-2013 was undertaken by the Interprofessional Education Research Group and part funded by the UK Higher Education Academy.

Drawing on three sources: the literature, an online survey and reflective accounts by invited teachers with follow-up interviews, it seeks to provide an up-to-date picture of inter-professional education (IPE), representing the responses of 52 educational institutions relating to 63 IPE courses or modules.  

The aim of this research was to understand how prequalifying IPE had developed and what needed to be done to improve its efficiency and effectiveness set against a changing and complex policy landscape in education, health and social care, and government.
