About this book

This book is the fourth in the series on leadership, interprofessional education and practice, following on from Leadership Development for Interprofessional Education and Collaborative Practice (2014), Leadership and Collaboration: Further Developments for IPE and Collaborative Practice (2015) and Leading Research and Evaluation in Interprofessional Education and Collaborative Practice (2016).

Along with policy changes around the globe, these three books have stimulated experts in this area to consider not only the ways in which they introduce and develop interprofessional education and collaborative practice, but also how they evaluate their impacts. In this 4th book, the focus is on the sustainability of these initiatives, sharing insights into factors that promote sustainability including leadership approaches and organisationsal resilience, as well as frequently encountered difficulties, and ways to overcome them.

Reviews

“This book provides a true international perspective on interprofessional education and practice (IPEP). It makes a timely and important contribution to the field. As an academic and registered Social Worker with a belief in IPEP I feel this book will support students, academics and practitioners to develop a depth of understanding of IPEP as well as the challenges and progressive ways of working.”

“As an educator of students and practitioners and as an interprofessional placement coordinator, this book contributes another valuable resource encompassing rural and global perspectives and the strategies necessary to grow interprofessional practice in fieldwork. These authors are IP pioneers with a significant body of published work as evidence of their expertise, but also their professional and clinical experience means they are able to translate theory to practice with authenticity using ‘real world’ illustrations. I will be recommending this text as the next iteration in their series to students and practitioners alike.”

“This book is a concise guide to effective leadership in interprofessional education. It clearly defines the three aspects critical to the success of interprofessional education in interprofessional programmes which are; patient-provider interaction, professional teams in the community and supporting organisations. The book systematically builds a framework for solving the real challenge which is building health systems that are centered around relevance, equity, people, quality and cost-effectiveness.”

“In a fast moving international area of research and practice this edited book provides a very timely contribution from many contributors working in several countries, The well chosen chapters are short, readable and all provide an important contribution. The chapters tend to compliment and contrast each other very effectively. Interesting to have the opportunity to have an insight into cross cultural practice.

The book is makes an important contribution and is published at a time as the demand for collaborative practice increases.”

Emeritus Professor Chris Brannigan University of Derby

 

“In my former role coordinating interprofessional student placements, liaising with multiple stakeholders, and establishing collaborative partnerships in health and education settings, I would have appreciated being able to dip into this book.

The book continues the authors highly valued series on leadership in interprofessional education and collaborative practice, and moves the work along to the next level by introducing sustainability. The timing is perfect. As many of the well-known IPEP initiatives are maturing, the energy to continue could easily be lost. Readers will be inspired by chapters on sustaining leadership, resilience, cultural changes, partnerships and networks, and of course research. The challenges of implementing IPEP are not avoided or sugar coated but sensitively explored, and insights offered with thoughtful consideration and real-world examples. The book provides an opportunity to review what has been accomplished by looking at the drivers and successes of IPEP in previous developments, and an update on these is a welcome addition to the topic of sustainability.

This book will be valuable for all practitioners of IPEP to draw on for support and guidance. The lasting impression on the future of IPEP is optimistic, and that planning for sustainability is both essential and possible.”

Robynne Snell, AdvAPD, Advanced Accredited Practising Dietitian, PhD Candidate, Curtin University

 

“This book will be a valuable asset for all those concerned with the outcomes of interprofessional education and collaborative practice regardless of discipline. It provides key insights from a global conversation about future directions in promoting sustained cultural change for interprofessional collaboration. Real case studies from around the world address a diverse range of issues, faced in planning and maintaining local and international initiatives. There is much to commend in chapters including leadership, interprofessional networks, exemplar educational initiatives, patient partnerships, indigenous health, rural health, and measuring change.”

Chris Roberts | Associate Professor, Northern Clinical and Sydney Medical School, Faculty of Medicine and Health, The University of Sydney

 

“As we strive in the NHS to continuously improve our services and to innovate and transform we need to make time to read and reflect on what others are achieving and how they identify and negotiate challenges and constraints. This book is a shining example of how that time can be very well spent.  It is supportive, realistic and grounded. We all face local demands and priorities, the here and now of delivering services in an increasingly complex social, economic and political landscape. We know that the recruitment and retention of colleagues is key to our success and that how we support and develop them is fundamentally important.  We also know, to varying degrees, that interprofessional and collaborative working are critically important to achieving this and to serving the needs of those who use our services.  What this book skilfully provides is an articulation of some of the universal challenges of an interprofessional approach and some of the creative and dynamic activity being taken to address them.

A key strength of the book is that it is truly international, drawing in experience and expertise from a diverse group of contributors across continents.  It is broad in scope, but also focused on detail.  The big issues are here: resilience, sustainability and significant cultural change.  So too are individual case studies, updates on established projects and reflections on some very practical issues in implementation. I particularly like the openness and the spirit of enquiry that run through these contributions. They will engage and sustain the reader of this very timely and thought-provoking text.”

Professor Sandra Jowett, Non-executive Director and Senior Independent Director, Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust, Ashton-under-Lyne, England, UK

 

“This is an impressive textbook offering detailed information on the aspect of sustainability of interprofessional education and practice. As such, the textbook advances the knowledge in this field and focuses on a much needed information gap. I thoroughly recommend this book for a number of reasons and relevant chapters it encapsulates. Specifically, I think this textbook is unique in that rather than focusing on one particular geographical area, it offers insights from practices in very various settings such as Sweden, Qatar, Malaysian, Brazil, New Zealand contexts, which helpful for global readers to get a better understanding of the topic. Additionally, the textbook touches base on specific population groups such as indigineous health as well populations living in rural and remote areas. I think this offers practical insights for readers to gain a wider understading of how to ensure that both interprofessional education and interprofessional practice should be implemented.”
