  • Using pharmacists to help improve care for people with type 2 diabetes

    The Royal Pharmaceutical Society have released a statement on using pharmacists across all care settings to help improve care for people with Type 2 diabetes.

    Pharmacists can play an increasing role in the prevention, early detection, care and support of people with Type 2 Diabetes. They can support people with type 2 diabetes so they get the best from their medicines, improving their health and well-being through integrated, collaborative and personalised care services.

    This policy and guidance translates the latest evidence into practice focusing on helping people to live longer and lead healthier lives, whilst ensuring safe and effective use of medicines. It further highlights the need to support services within and across different care settings, where pharmacists can make significant and meaningful differences in improving health outcomes.

    This policy makes informative reading and helps to guide practical implementation for commissioners, policy makers, opinion leaders, voluntary organisations, and healthcare professionals from all disciplines involved in the care of Type 2 Diabetes.
