New Article on the Social Network

Dr. Marjorie Bonello, INHWE Member from the University of Malta, has published a new article on our Social Network titled: “Bourdieu and interprofessional education: what’s the relevance?”. The abstract explores interprofessional education (IPE) and how IPE is perceived to be one strategy to reduce professional compartmentalisation and improve collaborative practices. The unequal power relations existing between the various professions who need to collaborate for IPE remains largely unexamined and it is only in recent years that sociological theories have been employed within the interprofessional field. This paper uses selected findings from an exploratory case study into IPE conducted at the University of Malta and then examines these findings from a Bourdieusian perspective.
