Abstract
Introduction: The clinical pharmacy services at Sultan Qaboos University Hospital (SQUH) are provided by qualified clinical pharmacists to optimize medication therapy in a safe and cost effective manner for better health outcome. Clinical pharmacists work in teams with other health care providers, perform a number of clinical activities and interventions in their day-to-day work and document them. A clinical intervention is the process of identifying a drug related problem and making recommendations in an attempt to prevent or resolve it. In 2012, intervention forms were incorporated in the Electronic Patient’s Record (EPR). This resulted in a significantly improved documentation. Aim: Aim of this study is to evaluate clinical pharmacist’s interventions at university hospital in Muscat. Methods: A descriptive evaluation of the various interventions carried out and documented electronically by clinical pharmacists at SQUH from January to December 2016. Results: Over the 12 months period, a total of 4775 interventions were documented. Systemic antibiotics were the drug class with the highest interventions. 53% of the interventions were in the drug regimen category (dose, frequency or duration) followed by 32% in drug choice. 83% the interventions were accepted. In 60% of the interventions, drug efficacy was improved and in 23% toxicity reduced. The grading of the significance was depending on each clinical pharmacist judgment, in which 45% of the interventions were leading to moderate risk of injury or harm to the patient and 19% were including suboptimal therapy. Discussion & Conclusion: The above results are comparable to those reported in other studies. Majority of clinical pharmacists’ interventions were to optimize drug regimen (dose, frequency and duration). Interventions can be used to train new pharmacists.
