Introduction:The World Health Organization (WHO) defines an Adverse drug reaction (ADR) as a response to a drug which is noxious, unintended, and which occurs at doses normally used in man for the prophylaxis, diagnosis, or therapy of disease, or for the modification of physiological function. Adverse drug reactions (ADRs) are a major clinical problem and are main cause of death and serious disease in patients and a key cause of drug attrition in the pharmaceutical industry, as nearly more than 90% of drug molecules do not succeed in preclinical/clinical studies due to a deficiency of safety and efficacy. The chief reasons for withdrawal of already approved drugs are cardiovascular and hepatic adverse effects. The main goal was, our future healthcare providers should have basic pharmacovigilance knowledge, how to detect and prevent ADRs in order to rationally reporting ADRs and preventing serious health problems. The main aim was to sensitize all the health care providers regarding Pharmacovigilance activities.
Materials & Method:The present retrospective and observational study was initiated by collecting necessary information about the Pharmacovigilance awareness program conducted during July 2017. The participants (n=47) were second year MD/MS/Diploma post graduate students (Medical), residents of Dhiraj Hospital attached to Smt. B. K. Shah Medical Institute & Research Centre, Sumandeep Vidyapeeth an Institution deemed to be University, Piparia.
Results & Discussion:The participants (n=47) rated the quality of presentations and content from excellent to good for both the sessions. With regard to the usefulness of the sessions, it was also rated from excellent to very good. They felt both the sessions were interactive, interesting & useful in all aspects. The quality of presentation was rated as good to excellent. All 47 (100 %) participants reported that it was an excellent workshop with good interactive session and interesting group activity. Majority of participants, 23 (48.93%) found that the workshop would help them to value add in their patient care in future, which implied that workshop was beneficial to convey the importance of national programme to the participants. Forty six (97.87%) participants said that they will like to attend this type of workshop in future also. The resource persons through interactive sessions, had given an overview on Pharmacovigilance, which was followed by hands on technique, how to fill ADR forms and group discussions, at the end of each workshop feedback forms were distributed to all participants. Pharmacovigilance workshops were conducted to generate awareness regarding ADR reporting amongst doctors is essential to promote the rational and safe use of medicines.
Conclusion:Feedback from the post graduate healthcare professionals plays a key role in the reassurance and augmentation of the quality and their understanding on their role in pharmacovigilance and hands on training in ADR form filling group activity. Further, the study implies that workshop was beneficial to convey the importance of national programme to the participants.
