Abstract: Cardiovascular disease remains a prevalent and consequential public health issue. Identifying strategies for managing this public health epidemic are critical. Clinical pharmacists have unique knowledge and skills that could improve patient care. Evidence has shown that clinical pharmacists enhance the care of patients with a discrete cardiovascular diagnosis, but this has not been investigated in the setting of outpatient, advanced, comprehensive cardiovascular management. The current study evaluated the collaboration between a clinical pharmacist and a group of cardiologists and the impact on a surrogate endpoint of cardiovascular diseases.
