BERTOLDO, Pamela  and  PARAJE, María Gabriela. Pharmaceutical interventions: methodological development and implementation from the evaluation of two cohorts. Ars Pharm [online]. 2015, vol.56, n.3, pp.149-153. ISSN 2340-9894.

Pharmaceutical interventions (PI) are actions performed in the pharmaceutical decisions in therapy of patients and the evaluation of the results, in order to improve the patient's therapy. Aim: The aim of this study is to describe and develop a methodology to perform and record pharmaceutical interventions (PI) in clinical practice. Material and Methods: A cross-sectional comparative study in two cohorts of pharmaceutical interventions. The study variables are collected in a form designed adapted from two proposals (one Argentina and other Spanish) PI are classified: oriented drugs, administration or medical prescription. Results: 460 were performed in two cohorts, 256 and 194 respectively. 83% of the interventions were focused on the drug; this group was the most frequent PI sequential therapy. This information does not show significant differences between cohorts, we think that the instrument and the method are valid. Acceptance of the PI was on average 95%. The differences between the other groups varied according to the type of prescribed drugs. Conclusions: In both periods the collection instrument allowed the proper registration of the PI conducted. The most common PI was no significant difference between the two cohorts. In all cases the clinical impact was decisive in patient safety.
