Abstract: Presents and explains the concept of multiprofessional education as a strategy for improving the competence of health professionals, particularly concerning their ability to provide health and medical care relevant to real health needs. The report opens with a definition of multiprofessional education as a training process by which students of different health professions learn together the skills necessary for solving the priority health problems of individuals and communities that are known to be amenable to team-work. The most extensive section is devoted to a discussion of practical factors that can determine whether an educational programme is adequately promoting the team approach in primary health care. Subsequent sections explain the conditions under which multiprofessional education is most likely to succeed and outline some of the difficulties and constraints that may be encountered. Explanations and discussions are supported by examples taken from 19 institutions in North America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia where various components of multiprofessional education have been incorporated into teaching and training programmes. These examples serve to illustrate both the relevance and the workability of this educational approach when applied to solve key health problems in developed as well as developing countries
