Author: DR HAQUE, BADAR UDDIN UMAR , MAINUL HAQUE
Abstract: Medication error is a huge threat on health care system. It compromises the health of the patients and cost them financial loss too. There have been concerns about medication errors globally. Development of definitions, classifications and recommendations to minimize medication errors it has become much easier to tackle medication errors for the health care professionals, governments, policy makers and other stakeholders. The classification, ways to identification and rates of medication error varies greatly; making it difficult for researchers to come to a consensus which is essential for easy detection and prevention of medication errors. Medical education did not give much emphasis on this issue with poor curriculum designs. The consequences was lacking of knowledge and skills for prescribing rationally among medical students and fresh graduates. Medical students and junior doctors showed their concerns of being unconfident in prescribing safely to avoid medication errors. Among many recommended ways to prevent medication errors and make prescribing and other processes involving drug use safer medical education pertaining to rational prescribing should be the prime consideration. There is consensus about formulating curriculum in clinical pharmacology and therapeutics and setting new objectives and outcomes for medical students. The outcomes are set depending on the competencies required by future doctors in their practice. The assessment system is medical schools also need to be modified based on assessing the students in real environment and more objectively giving emphasis on the skills needed for prescribing and using drugs safely and rationally.
