Abstract

Advocated for over the last decade, only recently has interprofessional education and practice been front and center in conversations in allied health. The wide acceptance of interprofessional education and practice, however, comes with its own set of unique issues. In fact, many people may purport to be interprofessional when they are acting in a manner inconsistent with it. The challenge of learning about and truly understanding interprofessionality is exemplified when pondering what constitutes a threshold concept. a threshold concept is a relatively new term in educational theory and relates to content or conceptual knowledge that can open up new ways of thinking. Collectively, this article presents our thinking on interprofession- lity as a threshold concept for interprofessional education and practice.
