Impact of Community Pharmacist Interventions in Hypertension Management in Patient Outcomes: A Randomized Control Trial

Canadian Foundation for Pharmacy’s $50,000 grant from its Innovation Fund supported ground-breaking research on the impact of regularly scheduled pharmacists’ interventions with patients with uncontrolled hypertension in the working population. Pharmacists not only significantly helped improve blood pressure control, but were recognized as effective sources of support for changes in lifestyle behaviours. Green Shield Canada has since launched a pharmacists coaching program for cardiovascular health, available as a core benefit for its clients with drug plans.
