Review of Clinical Leadership in Pharmacy (CLIP) Programme Scotland 2016-2017

Linda Buchan, Barbara Simpson

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


This report summarises the findings of a limited scope review of the Clinical Leadership in Pharmacy (CLIP) programme that was conducted in March 2017 by Strathclyde Business School. The CLIP programme, which is provided by Pharmacy Management, aims to unlock the potential of Scotland’s future pharmacy leaders. By embedding collective leadership behaviours within the pharmacy sector, this programme aims to support future leaders in maximising the opportunities created by health and social care integration and novel models of care. The purpose of this review is to assess the outcomes of CLIP in relation to the development of leadership practice amongst participants.

The design of the review process was based on the course documentation provided, discussions in July 2016 with John Stanley, CEO for Pharmacy Management, and conversations with the delivery team during one of the modules at Stirling Management Centre. These exploratory discussions enabled us to more fully understand the CLIP programme, its anticipated outcomes, and the potential for Strathclyde Business School to offer novel feedback to inform the future development of this programme.
