Integrated Care in Action: A Practical Guide for Health, Social Care and Housing Support.

Integration is now a key expectation within the delivery of health and social care services in the UK and internationally. However, it still remains difficult to achieve and sustain in practice. Based on learning from successful, and unsuccessful, integrated care initiatives, this book is an invaluable guide for those responsible for leading, managing and delivering integrated care across health, social care and housing.

Written by an experienced team of researchers who have studied, led and supported integrated care for many years Integrated Care in Practice draws on latest evidence, innovative practice and helpful theory.

Throughout, real-case examples are provided, and concepts and models are connected with the realities of day-to-day life for those working within these services.
