Collaborative working is a well established principle of palliative care practice and interprofessional education in palliative care is gaining ground. Those who work in specialist palliative care are often called upon to teach members of other professional groups. While multidisciplinary teamwork has many benefits for patient care, the role-blurring it can cause some uncertainty over the way in which each professional group differs in its knowledge and skill base. This chapter aims to clarify interactions between occupational therapists, physiotherapists, and social workers, identifying their overlapping and distinctive roles; and to outline the pre-qualifying education provided for occupational therapists, physiotherapists, and social workers. It also describes the issues in palliative care education and training for occupational therapists, physiotherapists, and social workers, both at pre-qualifying and post-qualifying levels, relating these to the impact of the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) Guidance on Supportive and Palliative Care.
