Written by a nurse, a social worker and a clinical psychologist, this book focuses on interprofessional working at the level of patient or client care. It explores how practitioners from different professions work together now and in the future. Practical details of day to day working, and how these may change with impending developments in the UK and in Europe, are considered. Ways of improving interprofessional working are discussed and particular attention is paid to collaboration across organisational boundaries.
