Along with policy changes around the globe, these three books have stimulated experts in this area to consider not only the ways in which they introduce and develop interprofessional education and collaborative practice, but also how they evaluate their impacts.

Emphasizing research and evaluation in leadership aspects, Leading Research and Evaluation in Interprofessional Education and Collaborative Practice showcases examples from around the globe in various multicultural contexts. Crucial for academics and researchers in this field, the book includes studies on traditionally under-represented countries and aims to prompt new ideas for future research and policy structures in Interprofessional education and practice.
