………………….The RPSGB’s Leading Across Boundaries programme is designed to achieve an organisational goal by developing the individual leadership skills of health- and social-care workers as part of a collaborative, multidisciplinary network or team. Equally important, the programme is innovative in developing each participant’s ability to excel at following a leader (“followership”). The programme also focuses on the different roles people can play in a network – whether they have the lead or need to know how to get the best out of their leader.
Through their learning, the local NHS staff involved in the programme increased the uptake in medication reviews through a number of initiatives. This included engaging with key professional groups, successfully promoting the scheme and redeveloping the referral process and forms to include triaging to PCT technicians or community pharmacists’ medicines use reviews (MURs) for less complex cases. For more complex cases, a full clinical medication review was undertaken by a PCT practice pharmacist.
