ABSTRACT:
The word medical audit focuses on evaluation of health care in a health care setting. It has been frequently observed that doctors are adopting poly pharmacy, promoting unnecessary use of tonics and other drugs under the sales influence of drug companies and overlooking drug interactions. This has resulted in increased side effects, adverse drug reactions and the cost of treatment. So doctors should write every prescription with utmost care and responsibility. The primary objective of the study is to evaluate prescribing writing error and to evaluate relative use of Anti-cancer drug. Present prospective cross-sectional study is done for 3 months in a Tertiary care and Private cancer Hospitals of Nasik city in Maharashtra state. In first visit total 100 prescriptions are collected and then compare with the 100 prescriptions obtained after giving the instructions to doctors for prescribing errors they committed and for proper prescribing practices. Statistical ‘Z’ test is used to evaluate the significance. In the second prescription audit significant improvement was found. In both Hospital relative use of Anti-cancer drug in total 1st and 2nd 200 prescription audit was found to be INJECTION-GRANISET3GM47.61%,INJECTION-CISPLAT 500MG 22.38%,INJECTION PACLITAXOL 500MG 17.14% and INJECTION 5FU 500MG 12.85%.
