Abstract

Aim:
This study set out to gain insight into views held by children's nursing students, lecturers and clinically
based nurse mentors about interprofessional education (IPE).
Method:
A qualitative research design was undertaken. Small focus groups were held with pre-registration
children's nursing students, and semi-structured interviews with university lecturers and clinically based
nurse mentors to find out information about their understanding of IPE.
Findings:
Participants not only valued IPE, but they agreed that it had the potential to positively affect the
care of children, young people and their families.
Conclusion:
It is important that professionals collaborate to ensure students receive high quality IPE
learning experiences.
