Abstract

The prevalence of diabetes mellitus makes the instruments for self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) needed. This group of products is realized by pharmacies. Pharmacist is obliged not only to choose some SMBG, but also to explain the rules of use, storage and care of them.

In consideration of the insufficient awareness of pharmaceutical specialists in these matters, the aim of our research was the development of pharmaceutical care algorithm during the SMBG realization. The methods of semantic analysis, comparison, synthesis, formalization, generalization and modeling were used.

The detailed block diagram of pharmaceutical care during the dispensing of blood glucose meters from pharmacies was developed. Pharmaceutical care on the pharmacist and pharmacy visitor (patient or members of his family) level has three stages. At the initial stage the issues of glucose meters selection are discussed. At the tracking stage the basic principles of glucose meters work, rules of the use, storage and home care, as well as manufacturer's warranty are considered. At the final stage the pharmacist conducts the control of mastering of information by the patient. preliminary stage

Three-stage block diagram as well as the verbal content of pharmaceutical  care during the realization of blood glucose meters from pharmacies were conducted. The use of the diagram will improve the quality of medical and pharmaceutical care of patients with diabetes.
