Part of the Professional and Practice-based Learning book series (PPBL, volume 26)


The final chapter of the book reflects on the challenges and benefits of interprofessional research collaboration, sharing data, and the application of different theoretical lenses when focusing on different aspects of practices, located in different national and international contexts. The chapter also outlines some challenges for the development of future simulation pedagogy, based on the findings of the collated research, and discusses areas in need for further research and development.
