This case study reports the outcomes of an
evaluation of the introduction of a practice-based
Interprofessional Learning (IPL) seminar series open
to all pre-registration students studying on the
health and social care programmes at a UK
university. Students were offered the option of
attending one, two or all three interactive seminars.
In total twenty-two students representing five
different professions attended. All students were
studying in the first year of their professional
programme. The evaluation shows students learned
from and with each other, although the seminars
were challenging as they were exploring their own
values and beliefs whilst at the same time
attempting to understand different perspectives.
Limitations were identified around the timing and
location of the seminars. We conclude that the
in-practice IPL seminar series was a success and it is
worth considering as an option for future IPL
