Abstract [en]

AIM. 

To compare the frequency and nature of prescr ipt ion problems detected in´community pharmacies in Estonia, Norway and Sweden where pharmacists considered it necessary to contact the prescribers for clarifi cation, completion or correction of prescriptions before dispensing. 

METHOD.

 

 

RESULTS.

 

 

Pharmacists in Estonia considered it necessary to contact the prescriber for 1.5% of problem prescriptions, which is about 3 times higher rate than in Norway (0.5%) and Sweden (0.4%). Formal problems were identifi ed more frequently in Estonia (52.1%); problems related to wrong dose, and strength and form of the medication occurred in Estonia (21.9%) and Sweden (18.7%). In Sweden 28.6% and in Norway 25.1% of the problems were connected with missing or insuf f icient information concerning administration and instructions for use.

 

 

CONCLUSION.

 

Pharmacists reveal and solve prescript ion problems that otherwise would compromise patient safety. The f requency of problem prescr ipt ions was higher in Estonia mainly because of the high f requency of handwr itten prescr ipt ions . Computer generated prescriptions may reduce formal errors as well as errors of clinical importance but may also introduce new clinical ly important errors.
