Book Description

7 May 2008
UK health and social care are increasingly being asked to work together across traditional agency boundaries. Although this sounds easy in theory, doing it in practice is incredibly difficult and complicated. In many cases, moreover, current training programmes, research and textbooks are even more divided than front-line services, and practitioners and managers are often being tasked with making partnerships work without the necessary support. Against this background, this book provide a 'warts and all' introduction to partnership working, summarising current policy and research, setting out useful frameworks and approaches, and helping policy makers and practitioners to work more effectively together.Short, accessible and practical, the book is aimed at students, practitioners, managers and policy makers in health and social care. Written by a leading team from the Health Services Management Centre, the book is also fully evidence- and research-based, whilst still being accessible and applicable to everyday practice. The first in a broader series on "Better Partnership Working", this is the one book that everyone wanting to work in health and social care should read. This exciting series of accessible 'how to' books provides an essential introduction to partnership working. Designed to be short and easy to use, the books offer practical support to those working in partnership and provide helpful frameworks to make sense of the complexity which partnership working entails. Summarising current policy and research in a detailed but accessible manner, each book provides practical, evidence-based recommendations invaluable for policy and practice.

good service, well packaged, timely delivery, product itself a little pricey for what it is as not much content. Easy to read and follow.
