Question 3

The white paper “Caring for People” was published in 1998 after the NHS and Community Care Act 1990. Both papers seem to have increased awareness of the need to develop both Inter-professional and inter-agency collaboration (IPIAC) in the last decades. Besides, the government issued several policy documents, which requires collaboration or partnership working arrangement to improve efficiency and effectiveness amongst healthcare services. While all of these initiatives were clearly declared in several papers, such as the 1998 white paper and, the Modernising Social Services white paper 1998, they all shared the views that “people do not fit into neat service categories, and that if partner agencies are not working together, it is the user who suffers” (DH, 1998 cited in Community Care, 2019).

With the above understanding and in reference to the case study or own experience:

  • Appraise some of the values of multi-disciplinary teamwork in healthcare
  • Explain with examples how multi-disciplinary teams can achieve effective delivery, particularly when supporting the couple.

You must draw upon relevant theory, concepts, models and appropriate organisational examples. Also note that your work must be presented with research evidence as well as practical examples to showcase the breadth and depth of your understanding
