Interprofessional education (IPE) aims to improve interprofessional skills(communication, team work etc) in order to provide the optimum care for clients and patients. Talking Walls is a form of IPE which is easy to conduct within veterinary practices as part of in-house training or within undergraduate education of veterinary nursing students and veterinary students. The session uses flipcharts to explore the roles and duties of both professions and aims to overcome prior misconceptions and stereotypical views and to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of the veterinary team. This paper describes how to run a Talking Walls session.
