Factors that promote and hinder joint and integrated working between health and social care services – SCIE Research briefing 41 – May 2012

“The aim of this research briefing is to give people who provide and use social care services an overview of the research evidence for joint and integrated working by identifying and systematically describing:

different models of working between health and social care services at the strategic, commissioning and operational levels
evidence of effectiveness and cost-effectiveness
factors promoting and obstacles hindering the success of these models
the perspectives of people who use services and their carers.

This briefing updates a previous systematic review by Cameron and Lart1 that reported on the factors that promote and hinder joint working between health and social care services. Given their prominence in terms of policy debates about joint and integrated working, the briefing focuses on jointly-organised services for older people and people with mental health problems in the UK only. In line with the original review, papers have only been included in this briefing if:

they refer to an actual, rather than proposed, model of joint working
they include primary data
an evaluation of the model has been carried out.”
