In a fruitful collaboration with leading pedagogic expertise at Linköping University and the University of Gothenburg, collaborators at CAMST have coedited and coauthored a new book describing and discussing a practice-oriented approach to understanding and researching interprofessional simulation-based education and simulation. It provides empirical findings from research on this topic and is informed by practice-oriented perspectives. It identifies critical features of the simulation practice and discusses how these can be used in reforming simulation pedagogy.
