The 18 papers submitted are a cross-section of my publications in interprofessional education (IPE) since becoming actively engaged in that field in 1989. They comprise four themes. Each is updated and complemented by additional conceptualisations. Together, they point to the need to: systematise relationships between stakeholders centrally; remodel IPE as a continuous cycle of learning and development; triangulate data from monitoring, reviews and evaluations to verify its evidence base; and establish IPE as a community of practice.
Revisiting the papers submitted provides an opportunity to reflect upon my contribution to the development of IPE during the past 18 years. The need to prepare this commentary instils an overdue discipline to establish coherent relationships between papers written at different times for different purposes and different readerships. IPE has become more varied in form, purpose and content during those years as it has been adopted and adapted for different fields of practice with different configurations of professions in different countries. Any attempt to impose a single set of structures would invite the riposte that 'one size does not fit all'. The need is rather for frames of reference within which to locate different approaches to IPE. This commentary suggests some of them within which earlier formulations in the papers submitted can be embedded.
