Abstract
This study sought to explore the use of a mobilising and organising methodology as an approach to large scale change. We have chosen as an example of a mobilising and organising approach to change in action, the work of the NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement to support the Department of Health Quality Improvement Productivity and Prevention (QIPP) programme, through acting as an enabler for a work stream which focuses on the prescribing of antipsychotic medication in people with dementia - part of the medicines management QIPP work stream. The aim of this study is to identify key components, and areas of achievement, within the call to action, to tell the story of how this approach has evolved to respond to the challenges inherent within the English NHS, to identify how this approach might be utilised by others and to identify lessons for the future implementation of such an approach within the public sector
