'This book plots the emergence of the principle of collaboration as a fundamental value in health and social care, and explores how it can be achieved through a series of case studies, including service user and carer perspectives. This is a timely read.' - Community Care 'This reader is aimed at new or experienced social workers who want to develop collaborative practice with service users or partner agencies in health, social care and other sectors. Definitions of what constitutes collaborative work are presented, as is relevant policy on partnerships, current research on what works, and examples of good practice.' -Care and Health Magazine
