So far we have covered tasks 1-11 of the 18 tasks involved in quantifying drug requirements (as summarized in Table 3.1). This module will explain and illustrate tasks 12-15 of the calculation procedures:
Task 12: Calculate the quantities required of each drug.
Task 13: Estimate the cost of the quantities required.
Task 14: Reconcile the quantities to budget, if the budget is inadequate and cannot be increased.
Task 15: Calculate the average quantity of each drug required per 1000 treatment episodes or per 1000 patient contacts.
