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.
