dc.description.abstractSpecific Aims: To further explore the relationship between patient’s diabetes knowledge and pharmacist intervention in patient care related to diabetes management. Study participants included diabetic patients being seen at the El Rio Health Clinic East campus. Subjects were patients being seen only by their primary care providers for diabetes management as well as patients being managed by a clinical pharmacist in addition to their primary care provider. Methods: Questionnaires were administered to eligible patients at the time of their clinic visit. Knowledge was assessed in various areas of diabetes management including diet, exercise, blood glucose management, overall diabetes control, and insulin therapy where applicable. HbA1C was self-reported as a secondary measure. Main Results: Questionnaires were completed by a total of 78 subjects. The pharmacist group included 48 subjects (mean age = 54; SD = 11.9; 60% Caucasian; 65% female) and the non-pharmacist group included 30 subjects (mean age = 52; SD = 9.5; 66% Caucasian; 57% female). Overall, there was no statistically significant difference in diabetes knowledge (p = 0.17) between the two groups. Conclusion: Survey data from this study, although limited and not adequately powered, showed no statistically significant difference in diabetes knowledge between the pharmacist group and non-pharmacist group.
