Description

Robert Bor and, Riva Miller, who run the AIDS Counseling Service at the Royal Free Hospital, London, are internationally known for their work in providing consultation to many hospital departments from within the hospital itself. Internal Consultation in Health Care Settings should, however, be of interest to anyone working within a large organization. The authors have produced a step-by-step guide to negotiating an internal consultation; and, in a very comprehensive manner, they have described their theoretical framework and the consultation work itself, both based on their own application of systemic thinking. The book is illustrated throughout with examples drawn from their own work.
