New CPSTF Recommendation on Tailored Pharmacy-Based Adherence Interventions for Cardiovascular Disease Prevention

The Community Preventive Services Task Force (CPSTF) recommends tailored pharmacy-based adherence interventions for cardiovascular disease prevention. Evidence shows interventions delivered by pharmacists in community and health system pharmacies increased the proportion of patients who reported taking medications as prescribed.

Tailored pharmacy-based interventions aim to help patients who are at risk for cardiovascular disease take their medications as prescribed. Interventions include assessing barriers to adherence, providing tailored guidance including medication counseling or motivational interviewing and services including medication refill synchronization and enhanced follow up.
