Relational Expertise – the key to successful inter-professional working
Professor Anne Edwards
In this talk Anne will discuss three features of successful collaboration across professional boundaries: relational expertise, relational agency and common knowledge.
These ideas have arisen from her analyses of collaborations, over the last 12 years, aimed at supporting the life trajectories of vulnerable young people and their families. The talk will also consider the implications for professional training and development.
