We explore and help identify what underpins effective interprofessional practice that enable professionals to offer the care people need and want and how best to prepare professional for this way of working.


Our team is currently exploring: 

  • The lived experience of medical students working as healthcare assistants and the perceived impact of this experience on medical students’ values and future practice – an interpretative phenomenological analysis

  • Physician Associates’ contribution to collaborative secondary care and their integration into the multidisciplinary team - a mixed methods study 

  • Leadership, in the context of integrating IPL into the curricula – a mixed methods study with colleagues in Norway. 


The CIPP Director Professor Susanne Lindqvist is a Fellow of the UK Centre for the Advancement of Interprofessional Education (CAIPE) and together with other Fellows she is actively engaged in research around interprofessional leadership.
