    While governmental efforts in the nineties failed to bring about healthcare reform, continued problems of cost, limited access, uneven quality, and service fragmentation provide the impetus for ongoing exploration of various care delivery models. Since the seventies, the benefits of multidisciplinary/interdisciplinary education and practice as the proposed solution for many of these problems has continued to appear in the literature. However, the focus of the recent Position Paper from the National League for Nursing (NLN) in this issue of Families, Systems & Health is a good example of why what comes around, doesn't necessarily go around in health science education and practice. This article brings up a number of issues that were not addressed in the NLN Paper that calls to action more interdisciplinary education and practice.
