Collaborative working is on the rise in social work and health care these days, especially in complicated areas such as safeguarding children, working with community mental health services, and providing services for the elderly or disabled children. But collaborative working brings with it a number of practical difficulties. This book focuses on interprofessional education (IPE), which is generally seen as a key solution to those difficulties. It provides a thorough introduction to IPE in health care and social work and examines research evidence in detail, providing essential practical advice.

Review Quotes
Hugh Barr, president of the UK Centre for the Advancement of Interprofessional Education, on the first edition
“Never has there been a more pressing need for a succinct, accessible and dependable guide to interprofessional education. Carpenter and Dickinson respond. Practical throughout, their cogent critique builds on best practice, reinforced by emerging evidence and theory, as they challenge their reader to be no less rigorous in reviewing their performance in commissioning, designing, delivering and evaluating interprofessional education programs. Well-reasoned recommendations focus on much yet to be done.”
International Journal of Integrated Care, on the first edition
“Carpenter and Dickinson provide an introduction grounded in experience, evidence and scholarship with helpful pointers to dependable sources for further reading.”
