Data Collection Form 2 - Public sector drug outlets

Data Collection Form 2 allows collection of all the data needed from public sector drug outlets to calculate process indicators PR9, 31 and 32 and outcome indicators OT3, 5, 6, 7 and 8 (see page 46). A form should be filled in in each public sector drug outlet visited.

Name of drug outlet:

..............................................................................

Location:

..............................................................................

Data collectors:

Date of data collection:

..............................................................................

1. Collecting data for process indicator PR9 and outcome indicators OT7 and OT8:

• List all the drugs prescribed in the first 30 prescriptions given to the patients on the visiting day in column 1. You should list all the drugs whether or not the patient buys/receives them. Do not list drugs sold without prescription or medical device (e.g. needles, syringes, etc.).

• The monitoring unit should complete columns 2, 3, and 4 after the survey and calculate the total for columns 3, 4, and 5.

• Fill in column 5; and indicate for each prescription if an injection has been prescribed or not. Write "Yes" if an injection has been prescribed, and "No" if an injection has not been prescribed.

• If there are more than five drugs per prescription, you should write on the back of the form or on a separate sheet of paper (i) the number of the prescription, (ii) the additional drugs prescribed and (iii) if there is at least one injection.

2. Collecting data for process indicator PR31:

• List all the drugs prescribed in the first 30 prescriptions given to the patients on the visiting day. These drugs are the ones already listed in the previous table (table for indicators PR9, OT7 and OT8). You should therefore collect the information for this new table at the same time as you collect information for the previous table. You should have the two tables in front of you to fill in the data accordingly or the monitoring unit can merge the two tables for data collection purposes and create a new table for analysis.

• Prices listed should be the price of each of the drugs included on the prescription, regardless of what the patient has actually received.

• If there are more than five drugs per prescription, write on the back of the form or on a separate sheet of paper (i) the number of the prescription, (ii) the additional drugs prescribed and (iii) the price of each drug.

• Fill in columns 1 and 2; column 3 can be calculated after the survey by yourself or the monitoring unit.

3. Collecting data for process indicator PR32 and outcome indicator OT6:

• Columns 1 and 2 should be completed by the monitoring unit before the survey. The drugs included this table are the ones which have been selected to be part of the drug basket (an example of such a basket is provided in Chapter IV, page 59). The two or three best selling brand names for each drug INN should be included in column 2 by the monitoring unit when preparing the data collection form. The best selling drugs included in column 2 should be identical to the drugs in column 1 in terms of strength, form and quantity.

• Fill in only columns 3 and 4. When drugs are within expiry date, write "Yes" in the appropriate space. When drugs are not within expiry date, write "No".

• When the drug is not in stock, write (-) in column 4. If the price is known, column 3 can still be filled in, even if the drug is not in stock.

No.

4. Collecting data for outcome indicator OT5:

• Before starting the survey, the monitoring unit should indicate in column 1 the name and the quantity of the drug to be collected at each drug outlet (see details in Chapter IV, page 58).

• When visiting the drug outlet, randomly pick a drug which contains the active ingredient selected by the monitoring unit and which is named in column 1.

• Write the name of the drug chosen in column 2. If it is a brand product, write the brand name; if it is a generic product, write the generic name and the name of the producer.

• Do not forget to write on the sample collected the name of the drug outlet and the date of collection.

1
Name of the drug to be collected (INN)

2
Name of the drug collected (INN or brand name)


 

5. Collecting data for outcome indicator OT3:

• Present a prescription provided by the monitoring unit containing the recommended drug(s)/standard treatment in INN for the treatment of pneumonia in a selected number of drug outlets.

• List in columns 1 and 2 the name(s) and price(s) of the drug(s) provided by the drug outlet for the treatment of pneumonia. Column 3 can be calculated after the survey.

1
Drug(s) provided (name, dosage and form)

2
Drug(s) price(s)

3
