The Case for Interprofessional Collaboration recognises and explores the premium that modern health systems place on closer working relationships. Each chapter adopts a consistent format and a clear framework for professional relationships, considering those with the same profession, other professions, new partners, policy actors, the public and with patients.

Section one, Policy into Practice, considers a series of analytical models which provide a contemporary account of collaboration theory, including global developments. The second section of the book, Practice into Policy, examines real-life drivers for behavioural change. The third section evaluates personal learning and learning together.

* Highlights the barriers to collaboration, how to overcome them, and the resulting dividends

* Enlivens health policy with a view to transformative adaptations in the workplace

* Draws on international examples of effective practice for local application

This book is designed for those in the early stages of their careers as health and social care professionals. It is also aimed at managers and educators, to guide them in commissioning and providing programmes to promote collaboration.
