Abstract

Over the past decade or so there has been a growing interest from policymakers, professionals, students and the public on the amount of money that is spent on educating health and social care professions and the value this investment may generate for wider society. In this editorial, we discuss the differing element relating to cost and value in the context of professional and interprofessional education. We argue that while there is an increasing pressure to provide evidence in the form of cost-effectiveness, cost-benefit and cost-utility analyses for health professions education, collectively, we continue to provide only a limited effort in response. In addressing this gap, we go on to outline some possible routes forward to begin generating and synthesizing evidence for cost and value for interprofessional education.
