Walk in my Shoes was an Inter-Professional Exchange programme that took place across Lewisham CCG in 2015 and involved staff from GP practices who visited local pharmacies and community pharmacy staff spent time in the local GP surgery.
All participants were asked to complete reflection forms which were analysed to identify and share best practice in joint working and propose action for the CCG to enhance effective working relationships between practice and pharmacy staff and so improve the overall ability of health care professionals to support patients in the medicines optimisation agenda. Ten months after the exchange, implementation forms were completed by participating GP practices and pharmacies to determine the effects, if any, of the IPE on joint working and medicines management initiatives.
