'Once again Mark Doel and Steven Shardlow are leading the way - this time in advancing interprofessional education for students in health and social care professions. Through their collaboration and careful assembly of contributors, they offer a timely, important and much-needed text to inform and guide work-based learning that transcends professional boundaries.' Gayla Rogers, University of Calgary, Canada 'Educating Professionals is a book of its time. In producing a text that is truly interprofessional in content and structure the editors have provided a volume that will be a vital resource to educators and practitioners. It is both a source of information and a multi-perspective analysis of the complexities and challenges of preparing professionals for working together. From the editorial through the individual chapters there are illustrations of the goals shared by the individual authors. The accounts graphically illustrate why interprofessional working is a vital project for communities served by these professionals. This book makes an important contribution to that project.' Joan Orme, University of Glasgow, UK 'This book is ideal for lecturers and practice educators, but especially useful to those who have a remit for placement learning across a range of professions.' 4/5 Nursing Standard 'The hope expressed by the editors at the outset to the book was that readers would enjoy and learn from reading it. This wish is realised and for those interested in practice education, ways of constructing learning experiences and theories of learning, this book is a welcome addition.'
