Journal of Interprofessional
The literature on collaborative practice is growing apace, but texts for students and beginning practitioners remain few, making this publication even more welcome. Written for new entrants to social work in the UK, it interweaves two themes: involving "Service Users" and carers, and collaboration between professions.
Journal of Practice Teaching
There are some exciting and challenging ideas in this book... I can strongly recommend this book to social work lecturers, practice teachers and social work students.
This book plots the emergence of the principle of collaboration as a fundamental value in health and social care, and explores how it can be achieved through a series of case studies, including service user and carer perspectives. This is a timely read.
Care and Health Magazine
This reader is aimed at new or experienced social workers who want to develop collaborative practice with service users or partner agencies in health, social care and other sectors. Definitions of what constitutes collaborative work are presented, as is relevant policy on partnerships, current research on what works, and examples of good practice.
