MNG91002 – Entrepreneurship and Marketing

The aim of this unit is to enable learners to develop understanding of the importance of working positively in partnership with others in health and social care.

Working in partnership is a key element of practice within health and social care. The concepts of power sharing, consultation and joint ways of working are essential for effective service provision.

Health and social care professionals need to understand the importance of promoting autonomy with individuals. They also need to be aware of their own roles and responsibilities and how they relate to others within the sector.

Learners will explore the nature of partnership on three levels.

  • First they will examine partnerships with users of services that empower individuals to make informed decisions and encourage independence.
  • Second they will consider partnerships between different professionals within health and social care and explore inter-agency working.
  • Finally, they will investigate organisational partnerships and examines different ways of joint working at a strategic level.
