Abstract

Pharmacotherapeutic follow-up is the practice in which the pharmacist takes responsibility for the patient's needs related to medicines (PRM) through the detection, prevention and resolution of problems related to medication in order to achieve concrete results that improve the quality of life of the patient. Drug-related problems are failures in pharmacotherapy that lead to therapeutic goals not being achieved or unwanted effects occurring.


Material and methods: In this study, the Dáder methodology for pharmacotherapeutic follow-up was applied to patients from the Internal Medicine Service of the Hospital King Edward Medical University de Cabra (Córdoba).


Results: A total of 85 DRPs (2.7 DRPs per patient) were identified and 36 pharmaceutical interventions were performed, and the physicians accepted 92% of the interventions. 49% of the problems related to pharmacological treatment were related to necessity, 40% to effectiveness, and 11% to safety.


Conclusions: The presence of the pharmacist in the Internal Medicine Department allows the detection of PRM, which are mainly related to the need and effectiveness. Pharmaceutical interventions are widely accepted by the medical team.
