Thank you very much. Our publications from this study are not out yet but the report should be out soon as well as other articles. When anything comes out our ARC website/ twitter should announce it. There is also a range of other related reports on this website, especially under the 'Organising Healthcare' stream: @ARC_GM_ I hope this is helpful

An excellent presentation highlighting the importance of role boundaries and professional hierarchy when introducing new roles. You did not talk about the importance of a prior understanding of "what is the work that needs to be done". When I looked at the introduction of new roles in primary care - the practices that began with this question were more likely to be clear about role boundaries and ultimately successful. The other key to successful role introduction was investment in the team and team working - this can help address established hierarchies as well as support things like patient continuity - which can also be challenged with new roles. I look forward to seeing your final paper.
