Cardiovascular health - medication management and adherence

12 October 2023

Medication management is particularly important for people living with cardiovascular diseases (CVD) due to the increased likelihood of co-morbidities. This often leads to the need for multiple pharmacological therapies, resulting in polypharmacy. Close medication management between pharmacists and CVD patients is essential to ensure effective achievement of treatment goals, ensure adherence and reduce the incidence of unpleasant or fatal side effects, thereby reducing the burden of CVD. This digital event will address the importance of proper medication management and adherence in the successful management of CVD, the factors associated with non-adherence to CVD medications, and the economic impact of pharmacist interventions on CVD medication adherence.
