The article discusses the use of followership to influence pharmacy practitioners to seek leadership opportunities. It states that 62% of pharmacy students indicated interest in pharmacy leadership compared to 30% of practitioners, which may indicate that pharmacy leadership positions may be filled by people such as materials managers, nurses and physicians. It also emphasizes the importance of followers as supporters to represent the importance and responsibility of pharmacy practitioners.
