  • Interprofessional collaboration is prevalent in the healthcare field. Both students and practitioners are expected to take part in interprofessional collaboration. Most research focuses on the positive aspects of interprofessional collaboration, which includes better patient care, lower healthcare costs, and increased job satisfaction of healthcare workers. This study focused on students’ perceptions of interprofessional collaboration, and why they might not want to collaborate. The categories that emerged from the study were as follows: professional issues, communication difficulties, logistics and interpersonal issues. These categories are supported in the literature as barriers to collaboration.
