Pharmacist-led self-care education and its impact on clinical outcomes of patients with type 2 diabetes in Pakistan

posted on 2020-01-28, 04:53 authored by ALLAH BUKHSH
This research explored self-care practices, disease knowledge and their association with glycemic control among people with diabetes in Pakistan. Poor glycemic control (Glycated hemoglobin ≥ 7%) was observed in the majority of the patients (83%). Disease knowledge, glucose management, dietary control, and physical activity were significantly associated with patients’ glycemic control. Furthermore, we examined the impact of pharmacist-led diabetes education on clinical outcomes of people with diabetes. The pharmacist-led educational intervention resulted in significant improvement in the self-care practices, disease knowledge, and significant (p<0.01) reduction in the levels of glycated hemoglobin (0.91%) of the patients in the intervention group.
