Role of the Pharmacist in Blood Glucose Monitoring pp. 287-306 $100.00

For more than four decades, in parallel with the evolution of clinical pharmacy, the pharmacist has been assuming greater responsibility in patient care to achieve optimum drug therapy. Today it is evident that clinically competent pharmacists can prevent medication errors and enhance the patient compliance through patient-oriented services such as individualized education, counseling and monitoring. The positive impact of these services on the health outcomes is most apparently observed at chronic diseases such as diabetes. In addition to dispensing, pharmacists ensure that patients with diabetes receive rational pharmacotherapy. This service consists of the identification, prevention and resolution of potential or actual drug-related problems such as sub-optimal prescribing, adverse drug effects, drug interactions, non-compliance with life-style modifications and drug therapy, and others. By providing pharmaceutical expertise in the form of patient counseling, education,
and pharmaceutical care or in any other way, clinical pharmacists would help achievement of better clinical, humanistic and economic outcomes. Many studies consistently demonstrate that interventions of the pharmacists at various aspects of care can increase the quality of
diabetes care. In diabetes self-management, adherence to life-style modifications and drug therapy is essential and pharmacists play a crucial role in counseling and monitoring. On the other hand, self monitoring of blood glucose is an important component in diabetes
management and patients performing self-monitoring of blood glucose may benefit from community pharmacy services.
