There is a wealth of research on health and care relationships. A couple of the many examples we like are the Whole System Partnership’s literature review to reveal the behaviours, processes and practices that if readily identified across a context will support healthy relationships across the whole system of stakeholders.  Another example of the importance of thinking relationally is the Health Foundation’s report The Puzzle of Changing Relationships which points to the need for those designing, managing and commissioning health services to think carefully about how their favoured intervention mediates, or is mediated by, relationships and how it might lead to the change they want to see.
