Despite ample evidence that medications improve outcomes in heart failure (HF) patients, few Canadians are receiving optimal pharmacotherapy. Recent evidence shows that pharmacist-led medication optimization was linked to improved use of recommended medications for HF. University of British Columbia Assistant Professor and Clinical Pharmacy Specialist Ricky Turgeon and his team will lead an 18-month pilot to determine the feasibility and design of a definitive, large-scale randomized control trial using pharmacist-led, remotely administered intervention to optimize heart failure with reduced rejection fraction (HFrEF) medications—with the ultimate aim that pharmacists become part of a multidisciplinary team for HR patients.
