Pathways to practice : exploring the issues Novice Autonomous professional
Not merely complex but supercomplex world of change (Barnett,2009:12) Focus on knowledge and skills v professional ways of becoming (DAll Alba,2008) Issues arising along the pathway:

IPE in practice – facilitating professional ways of becoming
Learning to become a professional involves not only what we know and can do, but also who we are (becoming) (DallAlba,2008:1)
we were actually working together it worked quite well to get the most out of our patients..its given me more understanding of other people's roles and how other people perceive your work as well, very much so.. I now have a lot more respect for what they did and the goals we need to meet and how to work together – joint working sort of brings it together – makes it more alert (Morris,2011) IPE in practice – becoming a professional
Focus on practice as opposed to performance ( Beyond Competence Project 2012) Education Outcomes Framework (Jan 2013) New models of practice-based education Problem-based learning in practice Opportunities along the pathway to practice:
Role emerging placements
Interprofessional role emerging placements Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy working with HIV patients (Solomon and Jung, 2006) Do not have an established educator to fulfil the role Offsite co-ordinator Peer support, challenging, creative, assertive advocates for their roles
Clarke (2012) Occupational therapy role emerging placements Important pedagogic opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of who they are becoming as professionals Challenging and autonomous learning experiences – new insight and depths of understanding revealed New ways of being as a therapist Increased focus on ontological journey
Interprofessional Education in practice future opportunities to share the wealth?
