Abstract

Numerous studies have highlighted the complexity of preparing undergraduate healthcare professional for interprofessional practice (Reeves, et all 2007). A significant challenge is one of perceived relevance of undergraduates in relating interprofessional education experiences to the realities of practice (Johnson 2005). Longitudinal survey indicate the importance of the readiness of different groups of students to learn (Coster et al 2008). Thus if student s can gain insights into the purpose and application of interprofessional education to their future practice from those who have recently gone before they may be more willing to engage with such learning opportunities. This exploratory pilot study aimed to evaluate a strategy designed to assist undergraduate healthcare students to gain insights from recently qualified healthcare professionals into the value of pre-registration Interprofessional Education (IPE) experiences. The secondary aims of the study were to enable participating undergraduate healthcare students develop research skills and to examine how the views from the healthcare professionals could inform the development of pre-registration IPE.
