Drug information--the problems and some solutions.


Several problems evident in the drug information delivery process and some solutions are presented. Major problems with current sources of drug information are accessibility of data, completeness of data, validity of information, appropriateness in the clinical setting, and currency. Better drug information sources are needed to provide rapid answers to patient-related questions routinely occurring in the clinical setting. Currently available mechanisms described to solve existing drug information problems are clinical pharmacologists and specialists, clinical pharmacists, drug information centers, and a computer-output microfiche drug information system (DRUGDEX).
