Background: This small scale study explored the interprofessional interactions that occur in practice between students and other professionals.
Method: The students completed a one week structured diary of their contact with other professionals, using these two proximity categories: Proximity 1 – within speaking distance but no interaction or Proximity 2 – direct interaction with.
Discussion: Eight students participated in the study and 31 different professional groups were mentioned. The results varied between student from different year groups and on different courses. Each student recorded different experiences and there was a large variety in the interprofessional interactions that were recorded.
Conclusions: The data collected will allow real experiences from practice to be used in interprofessional learning sessions and the results of this study can be used to illustrate to students which professional groups they are likely to encounter in practice.
