Multi-disciplinary working

Level: 3 | Modules: 1 | Hours: 10

Families draw on a range of universal and specialist services to meet the needs of their children and young people. It is a great help to families if the different disciplines providing these services work together harmoniously. For vulnerable children and young people and their families, however, multi-disciplinary working is not just a benefit but is essential.
