People working together and interacting with each other is central to health practice relationships. Clinicians do not work in isolation; they work with patients and their carers, colleagues, other healthcare professionals and community services. Without collaboration healthcare services struggle to be effective, timely, safe and appropriate. In this chapter we are focusing on the notion of collaboration and the acts involved in collaborating as part of health practice relationships.
