This chapter considers the relevance of the theory and practice of systemic consultation to understanding and influencing edge-of-care contexts. Issues relating to power, patterned responses, and the need for reflective and reflexive practice are discussed. Ways of putting theory into practice are described, including methods of consultation with teems, managers, and case-holding front-line practitioners. 45 references.
