Improved blood pressure control with pharmacist input

By News team

The addition of pharmacists to the primary healthcare team increased the number of patients with type II diabetes achieving blood pressure control in a Canadian study, published online in Diabetes Care (7 October 2010).

Among the 153 patients with inadequately controlled hypertension in the study, those who were seen by a pharmacist were more likely to achieve a reduction in blood pressure (odds ratio 2.6, 95% confidence interval 1.3–5.0; P=0.007).
