  Purpose
Our study intends to test the efficacy of pharmacist-led group interventions on a weekly basis for 4-weeks, then on a monthly basis for 5 additional months to achieve concomitant reductions in hemoglobin A1c, lipids and blood pressure.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percent of Patients Achieving Hemoglobin A1C Goal, LDL Cholesterol Goal, and Systolic Blood Pressure Goal From the Enrollment Until the End of the Study [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    Hemoglobin A1C target was < 7% LDL cholesterol goal of < 100mg/dl or <70mg/dl for patients at high risk-current cardiovascular disease Systolic blood pressure goal of <130mm Hg


Enrollment: 103
Study Start Date: October 2006
Study Completion Date: June 2008
Primary Completion Date: June 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: MEDIC Intervention
Receives pharmacist-led behavioral and pharmacologic group intervention for cardiac risk reduction
Other: MEDIC
Multidisciplinary Education and Diabetes Intervention for Cardiac risk reduction (MEDIC; a pharmacist-led behavioral and pharmacologic intervention in groups.
No Intervention: Usual Care
Patient continued on usual care

Detailed Description:
Our project intends to study the 6-month efficacy of a pharmacist-led group intervention program that simultaneously target diabetes, hypertension and dyslipidemia. We hypothesize that pharmacist-led group interventions on a weekly basis for 4-weeks then on a monthly basis for 5 additional months may achieve concomitant reductions in hemoglobin A1c, lipids and blood pressure. We are proposing a pilot randomized controlled study to test the efficacy and feasibility of this approach.
