Dear Dr Govinda, How do you measure or evaluate the quality of your clinical pharmacy services in hospital? For example : Rational Use of Antibiotics
To evaluate the quality, we need to continuously monitor and audit.

For example: as in case of rational use of antibiotics
1) We set an Antibiotic policy by undergoing process of AMS (Antimicrobial stewardship) where in data is collected for inhouse sensitivity as per Antibiogram.
2) Based on findings of the data we select choice of Antibiotics for different site of infections
3) We then monitor the use pattern of antibiotics and its adherence to the policy
4) Findings are projected to the concerned stakeholders (adherence as well as non adherence)

This goes on as a regular audit. The goal is to adhere to inhouse policy as per antibiogram findings so in the next data the sensitivity of antibiotics increases.
Its a multidisciplinary task.

Hello sir, How about your career growth pattern? What you focus at present ?
Carrier growth pattern excels with time. It depends on how can you handle situations.
Like any organisation your area of work increases, you get promoted time to time.
It is highly individual choice to choose their domain once they start growing.

Focus should be at par excellence in what we do like
1) Optimize our services wherever possible
2) Rationalize use of drugs
3) Train and Update other health professionals regarding drug related issues to reduce chances of untoward incidents etc.
4) Overall contribute towards development of healthcare system

1) Evidence based medicine (EBM) knowledge and Practical knowledge go parallel. There is a very thin margin of reality between them. Most of the time practical knowledge coincides with EBM but, problem arises when they do not. Surely, it is confusing but preference should be given to EBM.

2) After PharmD one can go for:
a) Residency programs
b) PhD
c) Management courses (MBA in Hosp. Admin. etc..)
It totally depends on what your interests are

3) For Antibiotics references you can follow:
a) CDC guidlines
b) Sanford guide to Antimicrobial therapy
c) INICC (also has Indian data)
d) IDSA
