Educate your Patients on Modern-Day Contraceptives to prevent unwanted Pregnancy - DKT to Health Professionals
The Regulatory Affairs and Head of Medical Details DKT International have trained pharmacists and Over Counter on the dangers of modern-day contraceptives.
The Regulatory Affairs and Head of Medical Details DKT International, Mr Abdulai Adamu, has urged health professionals to educate patients on how to make good use of modern-day contraceptives to prevent unwanted pregnancy.
Speaking at the training session, Mr Adamu, explained that the new concept was been introduced by the medical experts to track drugs and their side effects, adverse effects of drugs and health free system compliance mode.
He added that DKT International, producer of modern-day contraceptives and a social marketing platform on drugs and their side effects, has organised a day’s training workshop for Pharmacists and Over Counter (drug store) operators on the side effects of contraceptives at Techiman in Bono - East Region.
The one-day regional workshop was held at AJ plaza hotel that brought together 200 participants across the districts under the DKI.
He took the participants through modern-day contraceptives and how to enhance their safety in a fast-emerging competitive world.
He said we at DKT never underestimated the advised side effect of any drugs and its main focus was to prevent harm with the marketing authorization or outside marketing authorization.
According to him, some people use products out of the label and for that matter "we need you to partner with DKT to unlock the perception of the people and also educate them on the crisis and the importance to report on any side effects when they experience it."
He hinted that they have plans to extend the version of the training at the community levels as they seek to bridge the gap between the consumer and the producers of drugs and other contraceptives.
The workshop witnessed the presents of the Ghana Health Services, Pharmacy Council, Ghana Registered Nurses Association, Food and Drug Authority, Lydia Partner Clinic and Lydia Partner Pharmacy.
Some of the health professionals shared their experience with the media on their understanding of the modern day's usage of contraceptives and their side effects.
