dc.description.abstract Interprofessional shadowing, whereby medical students take on the role of another profession, is an effective interprofessional education (IPE) method to promote interprofessional teamwork. Palliative care is an ideal setting for IPE as multidisciplinary teams work together to deliver holistic patient care. This brief report explores junior doctors’ experiences in shadowing nurses to provide care to patients in a hospice setting in New Zealand. We conducted semi-structured interviews with six participants to find out the impact that this shadowing experience had on their professional development and feasibility of incorporating this activity into the undergraduate medical curriculum. Inductive thematic analysis revealed that shadowing a nurse for two days increased participants’ awareness of the nursing role and gave them the opportunity to develop a personal relationship with their patients, both of which made participants actively reflect on the value of IPE and the way they practice medicine. Participants considered the palliative care setting as conducive to IPE and saw the value of incorporating interprofessional shadowing into the undergraduate medical curriculum. en
