Abstract

This literature review constitutes the final output from an Australian research and development initiative Learning and Teaching for Interprofessional Practice, Australia (L-TIPP Aus),co-led by the University of Technology Sydney and the University of Sydney, and funded by the Australian Learning and Teaching Council.2The first documented IPL and IPE initiatives in the education of health professionals date back to the late 1960s. Since then there has been significant development as well as a fluctuation in the prevalence and importance of IPE in higher education. Always the domain of a highly committed minority of educators and health professionals, IPE has not to this point succeeded in the transformative overhaul of health professional education it advocated for from its early days. Yet at the present moment there appear to be stronger imperatives for such reform and change than ever before.
