This chapter considers the research evidence on interprofessional collaboration and communication, in particular that which relates to work in child protection and mental health services. Inquiries into homicide have also contributed to a widespread perception that the effectiveness of both child care and mental health services is impeded by problems in interprofessional communication and coordination. The chapter also looks at the very limited body of work covering coordination and communication between adult mental health and child care services.
