Children's nursing and interprofessional collaboration: Challenges and opportunities

Kenny, Gerard


Gerard Kenny


• Interprofessional working has been the subject of recent debate in the nursing press. • Despite this heightened scrutiny little attention has been given to putting this development in the context of practitioners working within children's nursing. • This paper seeks to redress this imbalance by focusing on the challenges and opportunities for professional development that interprofessional collaboration working offers. • This is illustrated by acknowledging existing themes of good practice, and identifying the potential for new ways of working that maintain professional status, skills and knowledge but also facilitate wider collaboration. © 2002 Blackwell Science Ltd.
