SASW Community of Practice: Adult Services
Collaboration or conflict? The benefits and challenges of integrated and multi-disciplinary working
Join us for our Community of Practice for social workers in adult services.
“Communities of practice are groups of people who share a concern or a passion for something they do and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly.” (Wenger-Traynor: 2015)
Join us for our Community of Practice for social workers in adult services. This is an opportunity to explore what a Community of Practice (CoP) is and what benefits it offers you in terms of learning and well-being.
Topic: Collaboration or conflict? The benefits and challenges of integrated and multi-disciplinary working
Social workers do not carry out their role in isolation. Indeed, there is a great deal of collaboration and joint working with other professionals in responding to the needs of service users. Since the integration of health and social care was formally introduced in Scotland, social workers in adult services have worked particularly closely with health colleagues.
In this Community of Practice, we will discuss the benefits of integrated and multi-disciplinary working, and explore ways to address some of the challenges that can arise.
Book a place below to come and join us. You will receive an agenda some reading prior to the session, which will be used to inform the discussion.
This CoP will be facilitated by Sarah Rose, an experienced social worker in adult services who is currently a PhD social work student, practice teacher and University tutor.
