About this book


Delivering effective health and social care, enhancing effective interprofessional collaboration and adopting effective teaching and learning strategies in the education of health and social care professionals, have become subjects of intense scrutiny and debate in recent years. This book is a timely response to an increasing number of initiatives being launched to enable collaboration between the various professions in health and social care.

Multi-Professional Learning for Nurses argues that opportunities for interprofessional experiences, teaching and learning should be consciously and deliberately built into educational programmes available to practitioners as they move along numerous pathways from education and training to work. This expertly written and carefully edited book explores key questions such as:
· Do we need multi-professional and inter-professional education and training?
· Will joint training programmes between health and social care prepare practitioners for the new integrated context in which health and social care are likely to be delivered?
· What are the constraints that are present in the planning and delivery of multi-professional and inter-professional education and training?

Written by experienced health and social care educators with leading roles in planning, implementing, and evaluating multi-professional education, this text is a valuable resource. It offers critiques, ideas and practical guidance to those developing multi-professional, intra-professional and inter-professional curricula in the changing climate of health and social care.
