Collaborative Practice for Public Health encourages individuals to consider the opportunities and impacts of working in public health as well as the gains that can be made by working collaboratively. Chapters explore some of the sociological issues that underpin the practice of public health and offer valuable insights into its complexities, addressing how different groups might work together effectively in the creation and delivery of public health policy.
The book also examines interprofessional education, and collaborative working in the non-profit sector and in primary care, and discusses why moving out of silos is an important factor in promoting collaborative working, not as a shared occasional endeavour, but as the underpinning experience for practice. Through examples, definitions, and a focus on real-life situations, this practical guide illustrates the different ways in which public health permeates health and social care in the UK and internationally.
