It is with great sadness that we inform our interprofessional colleagues of the sudden death of Professor Scott Reeves on May 4th. Scott has been a colleague, friend, collaborator and expert for the interprofessional community over the last several decades. He has been, and will continue to be, well-known globally as an interprofessional scholar; and he has been editor-in-chief of the Journal of Interprofessional Care since 2010. With a background as a social scientist, he has been involved in health professional education and health services research for over 20 years. His most recent position was at Kingston University and St George’s University of London, in the Centre for Health and Social Care Research. Prior to this he worked in Canada and the USA, following his early career in the UK. Those of us working in this field have cited Scott’s works many many times over the years – he has authored papers, reports, books, book chapters and a blog, many of which have been translated into several languages – and we have heard him speak in many countries around the globe.
Scott is survived by his wife and 3 sons – our thoughts are with them at this difficult time.
