Learning aims:

This resource will assist you to:

  • think of the organisation/agency in which you work as part of a network of organisations/agencies, professions and services
  • appreciate that each organisation, including your own, shapes the roles of its staff, supplies resources and sets the boundaries of services
  • understand the interdependence of agencies and their practitioners in achieving the range of support that people who use care services may require
  • recognise that inter-agency collaboration ranges along a continuum, from cooperation based on mutual objectives to collaboration structured by regulated procedures
  • appreciate that procedures provide a framework for practice but they rely on people to make them work by applying expertise and values and negotiating outcomes.
