His current research interests include implementation of recommendations from his recent UK IPE review conducted with Marion Helme and Lynda D’Avray leading into developments in practice based IPE including simulated learning and in contiuing interprofessional development (CIPD). 
He is Emeritus Professor of Interprofessional Education and Honorary Fellow at the University of Westminster, currently Visiting Professor in the same field at the University of Greenwich, St George’s University of London with Kingston University, University Campus Suffolk Curtin University in Western Australia, and previously at King’s College London, Tokyo Metropolitan, Nottingham and Otago universities plus a long-running principal lectureship at the then Oulu Polytechnic in Finland. He was awarded Honorary Doctorates of Science by the University of Southampton in 2006 and the University of East Anglia in 2010 for his seminal role in promoting interprofessional education nationally and internationally and his PhD in 2007 by the University of Greenwich based on his interprofessional publications.
