Pharmacist ‘Intelligent’ referrals to a Liaison Psychiatry Team

Julie Brooks, Aston University

My project involves the establishment of a novel role for a pharmacist linking information from medicines supply to clinical patient care. There are three primary research questions: 

Can a hospital pharmacist use real-time dispensing information to identify and subsequently review patients according to medication? 

  1. Is a hospital clinical pharmacist able to provide an effective referral to a specialist medical team? 
  2. Will the pharmacist ‘intelligent’ referral process increase patient’s access to a specialist psychiatric team within the secondary care setting, and will this lead to improvements in outcomes and length of stay?

This project ran from August 2013 to August 2015.
