Focus on collaborative working within mental health care, drawing on examples of good practice from a global perspective.
Collaborative working involves a range of stakeholders and organisations. The inclusion of service users and their families and carers in decision making has been a major shift in care delivery, as has the move from a medical model to a social model.
Underpinning this is the emphasis on recovery principles and not symptom management. The development of peer workers in the UK has also led to recognition of how individuals who have experience of mental health problems can contribute to the recovery of others.
You’ll learn through blended learning, beginning with two days of face-to-face sessions at Chelmsford campus, comprising lectures and workshops. The remainder of the module will be taught online, via our VLE and will utilise discussion boards, e-tivities and guided reading.
Individual tutorial support is available either face-to-face and/or by email or telephone.
You can take this module as part of our MSc Mental Health course.
