Department of Pharmacy Practice

The Department of Pharmacy Practice was established in 2010. The department located in Justice K. S. Hegde Charitable Hospital, Mangaluru, specializes in clinical pharmacy services such as drug and poison information, patient counselling, drug interactions and adverse drug reactions monitoring and medication therapy management. To cater the increased demand of clinical pharmacy services to the patients, the department activities are extended to the various departments of hospital. The expanding roles of our department include the application of evidence based medicine towards patient safety, pharmaceutical care, clinical research in disease management and continuing pharmacy education programs. With increased awareness in healthcare, the pharmacists play a major role in the hospital setup through ward round participation.
