Abstract: The adhearance is one of the keys for successfulness of drug therapy. Low adherence is often found in long time drug use, one of them is hyperlipidemic patients. This study aimed to investigate the effect of pharmacist education intervention on patient compliance and their lipid plasma level. The research design was quasi- experimental nonequivalent group control and perspective. The study was conducted on hyperlipidemic at Port of Jakarta hospital. The number of samples was determined by using Krejcie and Morgan tables which yielded 44 respondents/patients. Compliance is measured by an MMAS questionnaire. The control and intervention groups were given leaflet containing drug information and gave the patient the opportunity to ask questions. The results showed that there was no significant difference in patient characteristics in terms of gender, age, education and dependent (p <0.05) except on the distance characteristics (p> 0.05). Patient compliance increase in the intervention group differs significantly from the control group in the second and third periods of measurement (p <0.05) while the compliance improvement in the control group occurred in the third period of measurement (p <0.05). The plasma cholesterol level decreases significantly differences between intervention from the control group at the third measurement (p<0,05). It can be concluded that pharmacists’ education either in the form of leaflets with verbal explanations or in leaflet alone can improve patient compliance with their medications where the improvement is faster achieved by pharmacist intervention in the form of a leaflet with a verbal explanation. Pharmacist education is also able to decrease patient plasma cholesterol level.
