Binu K. M.*, Saira Hakkim, H. Doddayya and S. S. Antin

ABSTRACT

Background: The world today is threatened by a host of new life style related disorders where the advent of pharmaceutical care has led to ever increasing and dynamic roles of pharmacists in patient specific practice. Method: A prospective study was carried out with a total of 161 cases of life style disorders such as HTN (62), DM (52), COPD (25) and Asthma (22), through an active communication. The CORE formats for the collected cases were developed and are assessed with proper guidelines. Results: In study population male patients were more for hypertension (67.74%) and COPD (78%). Whereas, female patients were more for DM (63.46%) and an equal prevalence (50%) of males and females for asthma. A significant association exists in between the factors such as gender, age, educational status, social habits, physical activity and diet with hypertension. The association between the factors such as gender, age, family history, social habits, physical activity and diet with DM was significant. The assessment of developed CORE pharmacotherapy plan showed that majority of the lifestyle disorders were approached by evaluating both subjective and objective evidences, and most of the patients achieved QOL. Most patients were on an existing therapy and the evaluation of efficacy parameters were performed for the patients. Conclusion: The study results emphasize the importance of development of CORE pharmacotherapy plan and its assessment, which is a basic element of pharmaceutical care. If CORE was developed systematically, rational drug therapy can be ensured, which may lead to improved QOL for lifestyle disorders.

Keywords: Pharmaceutical care, lifestyle disorders, CORE, clinical pharmacists, QOL.
