Working in teams may sound simple, but in reality it is often quite challenging—especially within complex health and social care systems. This fully revised and updated second edition of Working in Teams brings together cutting-edge thinking about teamwork and considers how this thinking can be turned into practice within interagency settings. It introduces a range of theories, models, and research to demonstrate both the benefits and pitfalls inherent in teamwork in collaborative settings and how interagency teams may be made to function more effectively. A practical and accessible guide illustrated throughout with real-life examples, this book has a no-nonsense approach and breadth that make it an essential resource for students, practitioners, team leaders, managers, and policy makers across all components of health and social care systems.
