This edited book discusses the rationale, skills and conditions required for effective interprofessional working. In addition, it provides an overview of the roles and perspectives of different health professionals across a broad range of expertise: education, housing, medicine, midwifery, nursing, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, police, probation, radiography, social work and youth work.
This second edition:
offers a broad variety of case studies from a range of fields and settings;
includes a new chapter dedicated to interprofessional working with service users and carers;
looks forward, offering brand new content on new and emerging roles such as specialist paramedics and approved mental health practitioners.
This book is a valuable tool for students and practitioners across the health and social care disciplines, employing engaging case studies and reflective activities to support learning about interprofessional and interagency collaboration.
