Co-production and Personalisation in Social Care: Changing Relationships in the Provision of Social (BOK)
Sendes vanligvis innen 5-15 dager
Co-Production is a model of practice in which service providers work with service users in the provision of social care services - in effect, a working partnership. This book explores the theory and practice of this developing innovative practice in social work and related fields. Examples of methods and services designed on co-production principles are given by the experienced contributors, including housing initiatives where the users, rather than professionals, provide support to each other, the development of local area co-ordination as a service response to dilemmas of geography, and whether restorative justice can provide a better direction in re-integration than traditional criminal justice. Drawing together key figures in the field of social care, this book will be essential reading for social care practitioners and service providers, academics, researchers and students. This topical series examines areas of particular interest to those in social and community work and related fields. Each book draws together different aspects of the subject, highlighting relevant research and drawing out implications for policy and practice. The project is under the editorial direction of Professor Joyce Lishman, Head of the School of Applied Social Studies at the Robert Gordon University.
