"Going Inter-Professional" brings together researchers, academics and practitioners to assess the key developments and underlying issues as they affect hospitals, general practice and community care. Individual contributions look at topics such as the theoretical background to inter-professiona work; education and management issues; inter-professional practice issues in work with children, disabled, elderly and mentally ill people; the implications for carergivers; and developments in Australia, Western Europe and the US.
The inter-professional approach is sometimes seen as a threat to the identities and trainings of the individual professions involved. The contributors to this book draw on a range of considerable experience in the field to confront these issues and point to positive ways forward.
