A Preliminary Study of Clinical Pharmacists' Participation in Drug Therapy Management of COPD Patients

Objective: To explore the management model of clinical pharmacists' participation in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients' drug treatment, so as to provide reference for pharmacists' participation in chronic disease management. Methods: 30 patients with COPD admitted to the department of respiratory medicine of the first affiliated hospital of jinan university who met the inclusion criteria were selected. The patients were followed up after safe medication intervention management and stable discharge with the participation of clinical pharmacists and cooperation with doctors. mMRC, CAT, MNA and SGRQ scores before and after the intervention were compared. Results: After the intervention in this model, the results before intervention and after the first and second follow-up showed that the mMRC score, CAT score and SGRQ score were all decreased, while the MNA score was increased, the difference was statistically significant (p<0.01). Conclusion: the participation of clinical pharmacists in COPD management can improve the respiratory symptoms of patients, reduce the risk of acute exacerbation, and improve the quality of life of the patients under management to some extent.
