FROM
THE
PERSPECTIVE
OF
DOCTORS
AND
NURSES

How do you see pharmacy as part of the healthcare team?
"The pharmacy is integral in the delivery of the health care and health needs of every patient. In the Philippines, many of the pharmacies are dispensing institutions and these needs to get elevated to a more useful position where the pharmacist is updated with the relevant changes in the pharmaceutical industry as well as regulatory affairs both locally and globally. The Pharmacy carries the responsibility of assuring that the medicines it provides to patients (especially in-patients) are of high quality and safe. Medicines that work are medicines that heal."
Dr. Benjamin Co, Chair, Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee
Asian Hospital and Medical Center and Cardinal Santos Medical Center
"The pharmacist as part of the health care team plays an essential role in medication management system. They become the consultant on pharmacotherapy of nurses and doctors from prescriptions to documentation. With clinical pharmacist around, we can say that there is a decrease in medication related errors. The pharmacist's role in many practice settings has expanded to include not only dispensing functions, but also direct contact with patients and other providers. It includes providing health education on medication."
Ms. Christine A. Donnelly, RN, MAN
VP, Nursing Services Division, Makati Medical Center
"As more and more varieties of medications in all drug categories are being developed and made available, the Pharmacy now holds an indispensable and even sublime role as the guardian of Health in the Big Business of Drug development, manufacturing and dispensing. With their vast knowledge on medications they are the 'essential and final check points' who make it their business to protect the patients from preventable adverse drug events."
Dr. Jeanette Silao
hair, Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee, Manila Doctors Hospital
"The Pharmacy plays a vital role in the hospital's operation dynamics. Pharmacy is part of the system in the delivery of quality patient care. The primary responsibility of Pharmacy is to ensure the quality and integrity of medicines in the entire hospital."
Mr. Ronnie D. Abeleda, RN
Senior Manager, Nursing Services Division, The Medical City
"The pharmacist has a vital role in healthcare worldwide with the evolving goal of providing safe, compassionate and excellent care for the sick."
Dr. Lourdes-Dorion Diaz, Chair Therapeutics and Medication Safety Committee,
Makati Medical Center
"Part of the treatment of patients is medication administration and the expertise of Pharmacy is beneficial in the healthcare team to ensure safe and effective usage of medicines."
Ms. Luzviminda Acla, MAN, Acting Chief Nursing Service,
Veterans Memorial Medical Center
"The Pharmacist is an integral part of our healthcare team at SLMC. They work closely with physicians and nurses to ensure that medication use is safe and effective."
Annabelle R. Borromeo, RN, PhD, CNS
Senior Vice President - Head of Hospital Operations Group and Chief Nursing Officer St. Luke's Medical Center
what are the contributions of pharmacy in the patient safety program?
"A patient safety program is vital in every hospital and the caretaker of such a program is the pharmacist. That is because in the hospital, every patient receives a medicine. There is no such thing as a drug without a side effect or an adverse reaction. Patient safety is key and essential to monitoring the adverse events that occur due to treatment of any disease process. The safety of a medicine should not only be centered on the medication itself, but in the overall process of the treatment - from purchase to prescription to transcription to preparation to administration to documentation and reporting both safety and efficacy outcomes."
Dr. Benjamin Co, Chair, Pharmacy and Therapeutics Comittee
Asian Hospital and Medical Center and Cardinal Santos Medical Center
"In the Manila Doctors Hospital, our pharmacy is a major contributor in the Patient Safety Program. They are the execution team of the major hospital policies such as the Medication Reconciliation Program, the Antibiotic Stewardship Program, and the prime member and mover of the hospital's Medication Management Team. They are indispensable partners of the Infectious Disease Control Committee, Surgical Operating Room Complex, Critical Care Sections, Emergency Room Operations and the advisory body, the Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee. Their expertise is needed to maintain and optimize hospital services."
Dr Jeanette Silao
Chair, Pharmacy and Therapeutics Comittee
Manila Doctors Hospital
Pharmacy has several contributions in ensuring patient safety namely:
1. Prevention of medication errors - in such a way that they deploy their clinical pharmacist to check/review physicians order,drug-food, drug to drug interactions in the patients' record. Pharmacy also keeps track of the medication errors and near misses so that quality improvement can be done using the aggregated data.
2. Clinical pharmacist also provides counseling to patients about the medications he/she is taking focusing on the drug-food, drug-drug interaction.
Mr. Ronnie D. Abeleda, RN Senior Manager,
Nursing Services Division,
The Medical City
"Our experience shows that pharmacists, as part of the healthcare team, results in better outcomes, improved patient safety and reduced healthcare costs. They liaise with physicians to ensure the right drug and the right doses. They partner with nurses to monitor and evaluate the medication treatment plan."
Annabelle R. Borromeo, RN, PhD, CNS
Senior Vice President - Head of Hospital Operations Group and Chief Nursing Officer
"With their knowledge in Pharmacology, they serve as a direct consultant in terms of preparation and administration of drugs. They engage in our in-service and continuing education program for nurses to help spread awareness on updates and best practices in handling medications."
Ms. Christine A. Donnelly, RN, MAN
VP, Nursing Services Division, Makati Medical Center
"Pharmacy is involved in direct patient care that shall enrich patients' knowledge of their medications, improve medication adherence and reduce if not eliminate the incidence of side effects and adverse events. These contribution results to better disease management and reduction of drug therapy problems."
Luzviminda Acla, MAN, Acting Chief Nursing Service,
Veterans Memorial Medical Center
"Of course our Adverse Drug Reaction (ADR) subcommittee that is a form of pharmacovigilance especially with clinical pharmacy on medication errors."
Dr. Cleotide How, Chair,
Philippe General Hospital Drug Committee
what are the things that pharmacy needs to improve in order to deliver best services to the patient?
Selection of the right medicines by assuring its quality and safety
Minimizing inventory of too many generic equivalents - waste of resources
Train clinical pharmacists so that they partner with clinicians in the care of patients
Provide an open and transparent system on reporting adverse events
Minimize conflicts of interest so that all stakeholders partake in the benefits of a good Pharmacy program
Dr. Benjamin Co, Chair, Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee

Speeding up dispensing processes
Creating more tedious safety nets to achieve zero dispensing errors
Mr. Ronnie D. Abeleda, RN Senior Manager,
Nursing Services Division, The Medical City
Partner with patients more closely to help them achieve their desired health goals and outcomes
Contribute to the development of treatment plans through participation in patient care rounds
Actively find ways and means to anticipate and ensure drug availability at point of care
Annabelle R. Borromeo, RN, PhD, CNS
Senior Vice President - Head of Hospital Operations Group and Chief Nursing Officer
"Current international hospital standards now demand Clinical Pharmacy expertise from every pharmacist and their society must address this current demand. Continuing pharmacy education and local opportunitites to upgrade and advance in their field and to meet the country's demand for services must be provided. Also, the society must set salary standards to prevent the 'brain drain' pf pharmacists to other countr. The Society must spearhead affordable software applications that will help them deliver services conveniently and allow them to promote their role in healthcare and to deliver more in terms of drug education to doctors, patients and other health stakeholders. The Pharmacy is facing increasing demands for their services and we must support them in every way.
Dr. Jeanette Silao
Chair, Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee, Manila Doctors Hospital
