Research interests

Natasha's postgradute research will focus on the new roles undertaken by pharmacits across Greater Manchester. Particular attention will be paid to identiy work, professionalism and professional boundary changes.

 The project objectives are to:

  1. Synthesise the existing literature around new models of pharmacy professional work in primary care;
  2. Describe emerging models of pharmacy professional work in primary care settings in Greater Manchester and what they are intended to achieve;
  3. Explore how new pharmacy professional roles are perceived by key stakeholder groups;
  4. Understand the impact of new pharmacy professional roles on professional identities; professional boundaries; and multidisciplinary team working across general practice, community pharmacy and other services.
  5. Provide early evidence about the extent to which the introduction of such roles is likely to meet current policy objectives of reducing workload pressures in GP practices.
