Access to authoritative and independent information is fundamental for the rational and effective use of drugs. The service ranges from the provision of information for the rational choice of medicines within a class of drugs to support formulary review to the selection of an appropriate dosage regimen for an individual patient. Establishing drug information centers (DIC) at health facilities is very important requirement to make such service accessible. The guideline on the establishment of DIC was issued by the former DACA now FMHACA in 2004. Since then, various institutions have made efforts to initiate the provision of drug information services (DIS) at public health facilities.
The course was designed to enhance pharmacy professionals’ knowledge, skills, and attitude in critical areas of competencies so that they can meaningfully contribute to provide drug information service. The training material was further enriched by relevant experts from FMOH, universities, hospitals, and development partners.
