Abstract

A DCVR clinic has operated for 8 years and improves cardiovascular risk factors including the blood pressure control 1 . It is suspected that the current referral criteria defined as 'macrovascular disease' or 'nephropathy' are not applied consistently. The study objective was to explore physicians' knowledge and opinions about the clinic and obtain their views about the criteria for referral to the pharmacist.
