Abstract or Summary
  • The possibility that some requests introduced to the Oregon Poison Control and Drug Information Center (OPCDIC) by practicing pharmacists were inappropriately referred was investigated. One hundred and fifty-six requests out of a total of 1,507 requests submitted between June, 1985 and June, 1986 were presented to pharmacy externs, and their answers were compared to the answers earlier formulated by the OPCDIC. Both answers were evaluated on the basis of correctness, appropriateness, completeness and presence of extraneous information. Statistical analysis of the data collected did not detect any difference between answers given by either group. The results suggest that the type of requests investigated in the study are inappropriately referred to the OPCDIC. Possible reasons for this inappropriate referral are suggested and discussed. Recommendations are made for reversing this trend. Implementation of these recommendations would result in approximately a 10 percent reduction of the center's work load.
