`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.

An important issue as students have difficulty in grappling with the complexities involved. The guided studies and case studies were helpful and the chapter on the Third Sector essential reading in the current climate.

We will highly recommend this book to all our students in our MSc programm with ANP focus. It will be especially valuable if they go on to develope their buisness plans for role/service developments and/or design a service evaluation research project for their thesis work to consider the 'embedddness' of nursing within the wider healthcare system
