`The book is a real find for nursing students (and academics!) – a clear and comprehensive overview of all the key ideas related to multi-professional practice, with learning activities to help students develop a good understanding of policy and practice issues. The examples that are given will help make sense of how the theory applies to practice. This is a book that will become a key source of reference throughout any undergraduate nursing programme' - Dr Kay Caldwell, Head of the Institute of Nursing and Midwifery, Middlesex University

What does interprofessional working mean in actual practice? How do nurses work effectively within interprofessional settings?

This book answers these questions and is designed to offer nursing students a comprehensive introduction to and foundation in interprofessional practice. Chapters will help the student nurse understand the reasons behind the changing face and redesign of many services in health and social care, and their own role in the emerging interprofessional partnerships and teams.

This will be a helpful reminder of the diverse nature of todays health care setting. It reinforces the range and roles of all those involved in the healthcare MDT and encourages a specific consideration of that and how it can be used to help patients. As it covers acute and primary care as well as children and mental health this will have something to offer to all my students. The guided study boxes will help reinforce the ideas and information presented.

This book is set out in manageable sections. The content has a high focus on the impact of multi-professional working from a nursing point of view. There is reference to both adult and children's services and the different aspects of nursing. It is realistic and does relate to current practice and policy.
