Service trends toward interprofessional collaboration and user participation can both be seen as having characteristics that have in other arenas been associated with a move from modernity to postmodernity.
Key to this area are the questions of identity management and the drawing of boundaries between'insiders'and'outsiders'A utopian vision of increased diversity and recombination, allowing greater opportunity for shared decision-making, is compared to a dystopia of uncertainty, abandonment and avoidance of social issues.
The paper concludes with a discussion of practical and moral implications arising and a need to recognise diverse positions tempered by a shared direction for future service development.
