Improved blood pressure control with pharmacist input
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).
