The authors draw on their experiences of a wide range of practice heritages and contexts to propose that a new professionalism is required in an interprofessional world. They emphasize that it is only by using interprofessional understanding and awareness when engaging with practice issues that professionals will develop the safety and quality in work with children that is now required. The book argues that individuals cannot learn to work effectively in the complex, ever changing world of services for children and families, without first gaining understanding of interprofessionalism and internalizing appropriate values and principles.
The book offers new thinking on the challenges of interprofessional working including exploration of leading in uncertainty and its underpinning principles and values. Key features of the book also include:Chapters grouped into related strands of context, learning, working and current and future challengesCase studies and practice dilemmas designed to challenge the readerReflexivity pointsInterprofessional Working in Practice is essential reading for all professionals, students and academics linked to Children's Services.
