Kundanani College of Pharmacy,Ulhasnagar and Delhi
Pharmceutical Trust has beguna pilot project on preparing
distribution and studying the impact of provoding
"Patient information Leaflets(PIL)". Miss Manjiree
Gherat, a faculty member of KMK College of Pharmacy
has developed the PIL's (5 for different medicines
and use of medicines). These are consumer friendly
and with lots of informtion and pictorial representations.
PIL's hav been drafted to provide unbiased information
in both English and Marathi in a easy to carry three
panel folder format.
Twenty five pharmacists in Mumbai and Navi Mumbai
will disrtibute these PIL's to patients who purchase
that particular medicine for which that PIL has been
made. Pharmacists will also orally provide clarifications.
Pharmacists will collect feedback from the patients
about the PIL and its usefulness in a structured way
when the patient comes again to purchase medicines
or by talking to them over phone.
This is perhaps the firsttime that such a project
is beig done which will provide many learnings on
pharmacists role in providin drug information,role
of consumer friedly PIL's and improved health care
management. The learnings will be collated by the
pharmacists over the next 6 months. Please see attched
PDF file for the PIL's. Organisations interested in
using these PIL's may please contact the Managing
Trustee of DPT for further action.
