This book forms part of a series entitled Promoting Partnership for Health published in association with the UK Centre for the Advancement of Interprofessional Education (CAIPE). The series explores partnership for health from policy, practice and educational perspectives. Whilst strongly advocating the imperative driving collaboration in healthcare, it adopts a pragmatic approach. Far from being starry eyed, the series alerts readers to the pitfalls and ways to avoid them. ___________________________________________________________ _________________________ International Perspectives on Health and Social Care adopts a thematic approach to health and social care partnerships. The book offers workable information on key topics such as integrated service models, partnership working and finance, self-management and the co-ordination of services, individual budgets, managing integration and working across the health and social care boundary. The importance of inter-professional practice is emphasised throughout with a key chapter that explores the knowledge, attitudes and skills required by practitioners from different professional backgrounds in order to work together collaboratively. With chapters by leading international commentators, the book explores key terms and approaches to partnership working, helping readers to consider which way of working may be appropriate for which types of outcomes.
