ICS presents two posters at the RCGP Conference
A poster presentation at the Royal College of GPs Annual Conference in Liverpool today features two submissions that highlight how pharmacist-led review programmes have benefited patients with diabetes and atrial fibrillation throughout the UK.
The first poster focuses on a project in GP practices within Slough CCG, which significantly increased the number of diabetes patients receiving all of the NICE-recommended nine key care processes from 46% to 58%; as well as improving the achievement of glycaemic control (HbA1c), blood pressure (BP) and total cholesterol (TC) targets. These targets are key to the effective management of type 2 diabetes and the reduction of serious complications such as heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and amputation.
The second poster focuses on a review of 282,117 patients with atrial fibrillation which has prevented hundreds of strokes and saved the NHS millions of pounds. The review was carried out by clinical pharmacists from Interface Clinical Services in conjunction with the GPs from over 2,000 GP practices across the UK.
