Education-based interventions to aid improvement in prescribing competency. Primary outcome Improvements in prescribing competency knows how or performance shows how as defined by Miller's competency model. This was primarily demonstrated through prescribing examinations, changes in prescribing habits or adherence to guidelines.

Correspondence to Nithima Sumpradit e-mail: Bulletin of the World Health Organization ; They include Strama in Sweden; 22 the Get Smart: It was established for two major reasons. First, few resources were available for the fight against the irrational use of antibiotics, which was rampant. Using these few resources to empower health professionals and the public was seen as an expedient and efficient way to galvanize improvements by inducing individual behaviour change while creating a critical mass of people who could conduct advocacy and promote the rational use of antibiotics.
Despite the fact that teaching the p-drug concept and developing a personal formulary is a challenging and time-consuming task, we hypothesise that training in developing a personal formulary would lead to increased prescribing skills compared with using an existing formulary. The Index of Rational Drug Prescribing (IRDP) was calculated for all OPDs by adding the index values of all prescribing indicators. Based on the IRDP values, the OPDs were ranked from 1 to 10 (rank 1 for the higher IRDP value and rank 10 for the lower IRDP). Fukuoka | Japan Fukuoka | Japan.
Second, the rational use of medicines as a concept was not always getting translated into practice, and the ASU model was felt to be useful in bridging this gap.
ASU is action research that has evolved through three phases. The outcomes of ASU evaluation will be presented in a separate paper. The concept of Antibiotic Smart Use The guiding principle of ASU is that antibiotics should not be used to treat non-bacterial infections.
This notion derives from a fundamental precept of the rational use of medicines: URIs, especially the common cold with sore throat; acute diarrhoea and simple wounds. Patients who are hospitalized or who have diabetes, a compromised immune system or any other serious health condition are not eligible for participation in ASU.
To facilitate its adoption, ASU is assessed in terms of five dimensions: ASU is easy to test and its outcomes can be easily observed, since the targeted diseases are self-limiting and not life-threatening.
However, opinions were mixed when it came to the relative advantages of ASU. Its financial advantages were discussed at length. Under the capitation payment system — in which health-care providers are paid in accordance with the number of registered members of health insurance schemes in their catchment areas rather than the quantity of the services they provide — ASU is beneficial because it minimizes expenditure on unnecessary antibiotics and allows profit margins.May 22, · The only validated tool for pharmacotherapy education for medical students is the 6-step method of the World Health Organization.
