    Abstract

    Evaluating Outcomes in Health and Social Care is the fifth in a series of five books on health and social care partnerships, recently updated to take account of new studies and changing policy developments since first published in 2008. The book is aimed at students, practitioners, managers and policy-makers in health and social work/care. Health and social care partnership is in itself a topic which has presented considerable challenges to policy and practice in different countries for decades. In addition, this book also aims to tackle the complex issues of evaluation and outcomes, which is no mean feat. The authors usefully blend context and history, an overview of evaluation methods, theoretical approaches, practical examples and links to reading and resources in pursuing their quest.
