Best Practice I

  1. Title of the Practice: Drug information centre
  2. Objectives of the Practice

The goals of this practice are to give health care professionals & patients with unbiased, well-referenced, and critically analyzed information on all aspects of drug usage, as well as to encourage patient health care through rational use of drugs. The medication data provides the entire monograph of drug, therapeutic indication, drug interactions (drug – drug interactions, Food – drug interactions), recommendations to health care professionals, patients and caregivers regarding correct administration, storage, dosing pattern, formulation, route of administration, duration dosing of prescribed medicines, Safety of medicines during pregnancy, lactation, pediatric and geriatric population which leads to the rational use of drug.

  1. The Context

Physicians in addition to knowing a newly approved medication its indication, benefit, risks. They must also remain updated on new knowledge concerning side effects, adverse drug responses, and other drug-related information. Further, many patients doesn’t have any idea about basic drug information such what drug they have been prescribed with, how it going work? Misuse of medications can result in a variety of issues, including adverse outcomes, ineffectiveness, overdosing, and even death. Because medical professionals will be busy and flooded with information, they will not be able to communicate drug information with all patients. Many people will find it difficult and time-consuming to explain complex pharmacological information to patients. As a result, a forum to deliver drug information to the concerned practitioners on how to use pharmaceuticals safely and effectively is clearly needed.

  1. The Practice

The Drug Information Center is made up of highly skilled individuals who are knowledgeable about drugs. The DIC is active on a regular basis. It has exclusive mobile connection, e mail contacts, Pamphlets are published in local language and distributed to all community pharmacy, private and government hospitals in Narsapur to which anyone can go for medicine information of any kind. In the next 12 working hours, the DIC will react to each enquiry and give the appropriate information. If new drug information is required, the essential data is gathered and delivered to those who need to know.

  1. Evidence of Success

The Drug Information Center has made significant strides into the era of medical professionals and community as a whole. We have created a standard format for DIC reports. The documentation includes information about the enquirer, the query, the time it took to receive and provide the information, the specific data availed, and the references provided to answer the drug concerning questions. The essential data is studied and solved by our young graduate pharmacy students checked and countersigned by a superior authority for its authenticity, validity and appropriateness. Conduct a follow-up assessment to establish the usefulness of the information given and whether it resulted in any improvements in medication use or patient outcomes. Through this practice the students will expertise in patient counseling and enrich their skill which make industry ready.

  1. Problems Encountered and Resources Required

To establish accountability and defend the value of pharmacist care, pharmacists should log their services. The overall process of drug information practice has not changed as a result of increasing availability of medical information, both due to increased expertise and technological developments. To respond to a variety of DI demands, pharmacists must select relevant resources and stay current on new research and techniques. The major hurdles were faced while initially setting up the DIC resources. However now the informative resources such as medical and pharmaceutical references, drug database (micromedex), Medline, ejournals access and online sites were sufficient in successfully addressing the issues. Through the Telangana State Pharmacy Council, Narsapur Community Pharmacist Association, and IPA Narsapur Branch's different continuing pharmacy education programmes, we were successful in reaching out to medical professionals and community pharmacists. It is necessary to encourage pharmacists to use such services on a regular basis and to raise public awareness.

Best Practice II

  1. Title of the Practice: Student Clubs
  2. Objectives of the Practice

Clubs formed i.e literary club, Hogwarts club, humor club and photography club with an objective to develop habits of exploration and creative space for the future youth. It gives the students the opportunity to be in touch with recent advances in the chase of success ladder by having a sense of healthy competition among one another. It seemed very important to have interactive spaces for students enhancing their connectivity to build a more interactive environment for having the hear or say about current affairs from the academics to the talent they hold. The ability to network is a significant asset. Members of the club form bonds that aid in the advancement of their career. Students' affiliation with clubs aids in showing one's domain interest and achieving a balance between work and leisure.

  1. The Context

The formation of these clubs always aimed for the overall personality development of students in precise to help them deal with what was on their way ahead including improving their interpersonal communication as well as the much required leadership skills. It helped the students imbibe the self-reliance, self-dependence and love for manual work by inculcative scientific attitude.

The fact of having a club that focused mainly on the scientific growth among the students was as they say every simple thing is related to the world science, developing students practical application of the knowledge piled up related to different branches of science.

  1. The Practice

The statistics of students participating in several events from scientific ones to cultural has shown a rise immensely these activities included elocutions, debates, seminars, cultural competitions etc. It imbibed the sense of responsibility among the students from participating, conducting as well organizing the events securing their thumbnail by showing results. Publishing articles to maintaining a bulletin board among the activities held students evolved. The value of Time management was the foremost skill that was inculcated by participating such activities. Having said that the growth lead to the increase in the participations it eventually created an environment of team work helping them stand out from the rest of the crowd .Just to keep all the chaos behind the humor club were the fascinating ones as they say it takes not even a penny to make someone smile but to the know the exact emotions it takes a good one. The photography club on the other hand was handled by professionals who made sure the talent behind the club was polished enough to give them the courage to know the right balance of the talent they hold to be used for which numerous competitions were held among the team eventually rewarding them for their best work was a pleasure.

All of this could only be possible if an Institute believes in student’s growth Intra personal skills to academics and to our greatest honour we have such supportive management.

  1. Evidence of Success

Clubs plays a major during the various activities and events such as Induction day, Webinars, Scientific conferences, workshops, guest lectures, all cultural activities, and annual sports meet, annual day & graduation day and so on at Vishnu Institute of Pharmaceutical Education & Research (VIPER). The respective club members will be placed in various committees such as stage committee, publicity committee, on-stage and off-stage decorations committee, hospitality & discipline committee, registration committee, scientific  committee & cultural Committee  and ensure all the events to be a great success. The photography club includes active members who are highly efficient and are always willing to take photos of any VIPER events. They are continually on the lookout for new information and explore a wide range of topics related to student life on campus. While this is their prime aim, they also intend to produce unique videos.

  1. Problems Encountered and Resources Required

The common issue that was been seen was tackling various personality clashes and building a collaboration with them. Making them understand the ideology and value of the whole formation of these clubs and to rather implement in the way the thought holds was a deal, Keeping the interests and discomfort of topics in mind we worked on the them by beholding certain activities that tend to improve their tackling in ease ability To our surprise we made it through by having an effective communication through club meetings and gatherings.

                        The ambiguity and the information load was leading onto jumping conclusions as well as to handle the attitudinal differences between the clubs, there was a need of an experienced and authorized individual to keep the team tight, It wouldn’t have been possible unless there was a superior happen to be the backbone of each team , so there were professors  assigned to each club to keep the stability and sanity of the club that was helpful through the process. They made sure the team knows the balance of making right choices for their own good. The absolute help from the Institute where in exploration among the students ideology played the major role eventually preparing them to be their best versions for the world out their and to be chosen among the competition one beholds.
