Abstract:
A study of hospital pharmacy practice in the Republic of China was conducted in the Summer of 1987. The status of selected innovative pharmaceutical services and the attitudes of pharmacy directors toward developing and implementing those services were assessed. The innovative services were unit dose drug distribution, pharmacy-prepared i.v. admixtures, pharmacy computerization, drug information and clinical pharmacy services. A questionnaire was used to obtain data and information from a random sample of hospitals in Taiwan, R.O.C.. Most of selected services were performed in about 25% of the surveyed hospitals. The i.v. admixture program was performed by the lowest percent of general hospitals as compared to the other services in this study. Pharmacy directors indicated that their attitudes toward selected innovative pharmaceutical services in terms of seven possible effects or outcomes were positive, but the scores relating to the other professionals and operating expenses were neutral or negative.
