• Screening Services in Pharmacies: Blood Pressure, Blood Glucose and Cholesterol: Pharmacists Module 5, 2020

    Primary care is becoming increasingly important and pharmacists are well positioned and qualified to play a valuable role in this regard.  As a component of primary care, screening services have become part of the armamentarium of services which pharmacists can provide in a pharmacy.  This is recognised by the South African Pharmacy Council which has listed the services that may be provided by pharmacists and for which a fee may be levied.

    This module addresses blood pressure, blood glucose and cholesterol screening as the early identification of hypertension, diabetes and hyperlipidaemia is important so that these conditions can be treated, and better health outcomes achieved.
