Dear Dr Govinda, How do you measure or evaluate the quality of your clinical pharmacy services in hospital? For example : Rational Use of Antibiotics
To evaluate the quality, we need to continuously monitor and audit.
For example: as in case of rational use of antibiotics
1) We set an Antibiotic policy by undergoing process of AMS (Antimicrobial stewardship) where in data is collected for inhouse sensitivity as per Antibiogram.
2) Based on findings of the data we select choice of Antibiotics for different site of infections
3) We then monitor the use pattern of antibiotics and its adherence to the policy
4) Findings are projected to the concerned stakeholders (adherence as well as non adherence)
This goes on as a regular audit. The goal is to adhere to inhouse policy as per antibiogram findings so in the next data the sensitivity of antibiotics increases.
Its a multidisciplinary task.
