Synopsis: 
This pharmacist evaluative research study (PHARMERS) sought to empower pharmacists to assist in the management of poorly-controlled, diabetic patients. We hoped to demonstrate that patients stand a better chance of achieving improved glycaemic control if closely monitored by a pharmacist.

Abstract

Objective: Pharmacists have not demonstrated the ability to manage chronic diseases such as Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus, which is an ongoing problem in Trinidad and Tobago. The primary objective was to demonstrate that pharmacists can assist patients to achieve at least a 1% decrease in glycosylated haemoglobin (HbA1c ).
