Abstract: This paper describes teaching methods used for delivery of the MLMs, as well as evaluation methods and results. However, it also raises the critical question of whether multi-professional education (MPE) will be effective in promoting long-term changes in the graduates' approaches to their professional practice and whether the health outcomes of patients will be improved. This same question occurs repeatedly in the literature and there appears to be wide acknowledgement that there is a need for more substantial evidence of the benefits in terms of better practice outcomes.
