Prescription evaluation practice by final year pharmacy students
Pharmacists can be defined as a healthcare professional responsible for medication dispensations as well as ensuring patient safety through appropriate medication utilization. They play a significant role not only on the overall healthcare cost implications but also the patient safety concerns when using medications. The scope of this paper will be to evaluate the practice of prescription amongst the final pharmacy students in the school through the use of a prospective research methodology. From 137 students, 31 failed to identify the error in dosing (22.6%) while 106 (77.4%) responded with the presence of error and from these 102 (74.5%) recommended to adjust the dose according to patient weight correctly.
