With our new collaborative curriculum this book is essential. It highlights the need for collaborative working and clearly links this with the NMC requirements

Plenty of scenarios and case studies to help students put what they've read into context. Good concept summaries and research summaries to clarify students' understanding. The inclusion of useful websites at the end of each chapter is a great idea.

Students at the end of their course have to submit a number of pieces of work based on collaborative practice. This book is useful in giving them a starting point on the subject and provides useful information relevant to their course.

I have found this excellent book a useful resource for nursing students throughout the curriculum; from introducing the concept of multiagency working in the first year to teaching about the challenges of providing collaborative care.
