Professional practice is a social phenomenon in essence and in realisation. How we view professional practice in any era is influenced by the sociocultural and historical influences on that era. “There is no single, a historical set of professional practices” (Broadbent, Dietrich, & Roberts, 2005, p. 1). Contextual change is dynamic rather than linear, embedded rather than objective, conditional rather than predictable, and is amenable to influence rather than inevitable.
