We are now helping trusts to meet the requirements of the new guidance.

Most respondents students, tutors, practice teachers, users and carers had difficulties defining partnership.
In the practice survey, both college and practice-based staff identified partnership as: Terms commonly used to characterise partnership referred to sharing power, joint decision-making and recognition of respective roles and responsibilities.
The conclusions argue strongly for greater transparency in the concept of partnership, acknowledging that it has different meanings in different contexts.
A working definition of partnership The following definition is offered as a benchmark and starting point for discussion, to illuminate what it omits as well as what it includes: The essence of partnership is sharing.
It is marked by respect for one another, role divisions, rights to information, accountability, competence, and value accorded to individual input.
In short, each partner is seen as having something to contribute, power is shared, decisions are made jointly and roles are not only respected but are also backed by legal and moral rights.
There needs to be an acknowledgement of differences in power. The advantage of this definition, however, is that it could apply to partnership with a range of stakeholders, including users as well as other professionals.
This requires us to be particularly clear about the use of terms here. We will be exploring examples of good practice that address one or more of these levels.
Defining and recognising good practice Good practice is a notoriously difficult concept to define.
As found in the research review, we lack a sufficient research base about the learning, teaching and assessment of partnership work, in particular evidence about outcomes for student learning and the consequent outcomes for users and carers. The practice survey revealed some interesting and potentially significant practice, not yet adequately researched and arguably not ready for dissemination but which if not included would prevent wider dissemination that might in itself result in increased research activity.
As a result, the research team identified the following good practice criteria and agreed that to determine good practice, criteria 1—4 must be met, and criteria 5—7 are desirable. Why are criteria 5, 6 and 7 desirable rather than essential?
Interprofessional education had been included in the research review only if it focused explicitly on partnership work. However, beyond payment to users and carers, generally accepted as a norm for practice in social work education, thinking about other kinds of rewards, such as accreditation of training for users and carers, was at an early stage.
However, as indicated above, the practice survey revealed some interesting and potentially significant practice that if disseminated more widely might in itself result in increased research activity.Research Methods & Reporting The PRISMA statement for reporting systematic reviews and meta-analyses of studies that evaluate healthcare interventions: explanation and .
Partnerships with parents/carers Working with Parents. Partnership with parents plays a key role in promoting a culture of co-operation between parents, schools, LAs and others. Inequality between policy and practice is seen in all aspects of health and social care.
The irony is that those who create the legislation and policies promoting the benefits of partnership-working, clearly are not working in partnership with those having to provide the front line support.
