Abstract

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.
