Chapter 1: Introduction to the Concept of Drug Information

++
++
++

The first drug information center was opened in 1962 at:

++
++
++

a. The University of Iowa

++
++

b. The Ohio State University

++
++

c. The University of Kentucky

++
++

d. Misr International University in Cairo, Egypt

++
++

e. None of the above

+
++

c. The University of Kentucky

++
++
++

Formal drug information centers are found more often in hospitals of the following size:

++
++
++

a. Less than 100 beds

++
++

b. 100–150 beds

++
++

c. 200–300 beds

++
++

d. 301–400 beds

++
++

e. >600 beds

+
++

e. >600 beds

++
++
++

In current practice, the term drug information is used:

++
++
++

a. To convey the management and use of information on medication therapy

++
++

b. To prevent confusion with information on drugs of abuse

++
++

c. To signify the broader role that all pharmacists take in information provision

++
++

d. a and b

++
++

e. a and c

+
++

e. a and c

++
++
++

There is evidence that the cost-benefit ratio of drug information services ranges from:

++
++
++

a. 1:1 to 1.5:1

++
++

b. 1.6:1 to 2:1

++
++

c. 2.9:1 to 13.2:1

++
++

d. 14:1 to 20:1

++
++

e. More than 25:1

+
++

c. 2.9:1 to 13.2:1

++
++
++

The cost-benefit ratio of a drug information services related to patient-specific requests largely resulted from savings by:

++
++
++

a. Decreasing the books in the library by increasing the use of electronic sources

++
++

b. Decreasing the need for drug monitoring

++
++

c. Decreasing the need for additional treatment related to an adverse event

++
++

d. Preventing adverse drug reactions

++
++

e. Both b and c are correct

+
++

e. Both b and c are correct

++
