Leading Interprofessional Teams in Health and Social Care Paperback / softback
The move to multidisciplinary teams in primary care and the emphasis on joined-up working across the human services make it increasingly necessary for health and social care professionals to take on a variety of leadership roles in teams made up of people from different professional backgrounds.
This sort of leadership requires different skills from those required when working in the context of a single profession familiar to every member of the team. In Leading Interprofessional Teams in Health and Social Care, the authors use detailed case-studies to explore these skills.
Nurses, social workers and other health and social care professionals, specialists and managers are included in the case-studies to demonstrate how leadership and teamworking roles can be taken in different ways and in different circumstances.
The final section of the book presents an analysis of the case-studies to draw out the key issues and discusses how readers might develop themselves to be successful leaders and team members in these diverse settings.
