"Many health, education and social service initiatives in the UK aim to implement better multi-agency working between agencies and professionals. But what difference does this sort of organizational change make to those families and children on the receiving end? This book explores the process and impact of multi-agency working on disabled children with complex health care needs and the families and professionals who support them. Examining in detail the work of six multi-agency services, the report describes the process of multi-agency working, key success factors, and outcomes for professionals, as well as the impact on families in terms of their daily life, well-being, and contact with services and professionals. A concluding chapter summarizes key issues and makes recommendations for policy and practice. REPORT."
