The Journal of Interprofessional Care is seeking to have a special issue on the history of interprofessional collaboration, how different professions emerged and integrated into the health system over time, and how this history may impact efforts to collaborate for patient centred care. Kathleen MacMillan, Director of the School of Nursing at Dalhousie, is co-editing the proposed issue with Scott Reeves, a medical sociologist at UCSF, whose research centres on interprofessional education and collaboration (IPEC).
All manuscripts must be submitted by 31 June 2013 and must follow JIC guidelines (http//:www.informahealthcare.com/jic). All manuscripts must undergo peer review prior to being published in the thematic issue.
