ABSTRACT

Objective: To assess the knowledge, attitude and practices (KAP) about Adverse drug reporting of ASU drug and pharmacovigilance among Ayurveda healthcare professionals working in state of Odisha, India. Material and Methods: A survey questionnaire for assessing the Knowledge, Attitude and the Practice (KAP) of Pharmacovigilance was designed and distributed among 110 Ayurvedic physicians working in different districts of state of Odisha. Results: Among the 110 doctors, 63 responded. Analysis of the data revealed that 53.96% of the subjects knew about the concept of „pharmacovigilance‟, 46.03% were aware of the existence of the National Pharmacovigilance Program. 17.46 % have encountered any of the adverse events with ASU drugs but none has ever reported any ADR and none are familiar with standardized form for Reporting adverse drug reactions of ASU drugs. Conclusion: There is a need for a regular training and the reenforcement for the ADR reporting among the health care personnel. The inappropriate perception regarding the reporting process, lack of time, a poor knowledge on the reporting mechanism and inadequate expertise seemed to be the main reasons for not reporting the ADRs. A majority of the respondents suggested regular training sessions on a priority basis for the success of the pharmacovigilance program and for the better clinical management of the patients in general.

Keywords: Adverse Drug Reaction, Pharmacovigilance, Ayurveda.
