[Do we primary care doctors improve our prescription of generic medicines after the intervention of the area pharmacist?].


OBJECTIVE:To evaluate the prescription of generic medicines by the primary care doctors in a health district after an intervention programme conducted by the area pharmacist. DESIGN:Intervention study. Two indicators were selected as indicators of pharmaceutical prescription of generics. SETTING:Primary care. District 8 of Area 3, Valencian Community, Spain. PARTICIPANTS:Eleven family doctors and 2 paediatricians. INTERVENTIONS:a) Information session in the health centre given by the area pharmacist; b) delivery of the catalogue of generic medicines; c) delivery of the control panel to every physician; and d) possibility of connection to the GAIA system. MAIN MEASUREMENTS:A before-and-after evaluation was made (at 6 months and 12 months from the intervention) of every doctor. Values were compared with the 2 indicators of pharmaceutical prescription. RESULTS:Before the intervention, no doctor was fulfilling the Indicators of pharmaceutical prescription 1 and 2. At 6 months, all the doctors had increased their prescription of generics. Seven doctors met the objective of Indicator 1; and 8, that of indicator 2. At 12 months the increase remained and even grew. CONCLUSIONS:The prescription of generics measured with indicators of pharmaceutical prescription 1 and 2 improved.
