He argues, as do I, that although each profession has its own knowledge base and perspective and guards these boundaries diligently, they use remarkably similar approaches and practices in the area of continuing education and learning. Yet despite this, in “implicit acceptance of uniqueness”, each profession “goes its own way alone, winning its victories, making its mistakes, and maturing in its own conceptions” (p. 15). Even now when inter-professional education is widely stressed (Barr, Koppel, Reeves, Hammick, & Freeth, 2005), limited collaboration between professions occurs in the area of continuing learning.
Yet despite this, in “implicit acceptance of uniqueness”, each profession “goes its own way alone, winning its victories, making its mistakes, and maturing in its own conceptions” (p. 15). Even now when inter-professional education is widely stressed (Barr, Koppel, Reeves, Hammick, & Freeth, 2005), limited collaboration between professions occurs in the area of continuing learning.

By the mid-1960s, use of the term “profession” had become explicitly linked to involvement with higher education and an increasingly well-defined sequence of qualifications focusing on a specialised body of knowledge (Burnham, 1998, p. 105).

In most professional courses today specialised theory is taught first, gradually integrated into supervised practice, with professional ethics introduced before graduation.
