Élimination des déchets dans les officines réunionnaises

Abstract : Drug is not a product like the others (is everything but a regular product), neither a waste like the others as it has a potential environmental and sanitary risk. Among the waste recycling policy of « Déchets Issus des Médicaments (DIM) », the drugstore pharmacists have a huge part to play thanks to the specific and well known different accommodations in place. This thesis is about the analysis of present knowledge of the pharmacists of Ile de la Réunion facing the recycling of drugs they have to manage at the drugstore: “Médicaments Non Utilisés (MNU)”, “Déchets d’Activités de Soins à Risques Infectieux (DASRI)” and Drugs (dope). Daily management is studied based on the survey of 10 questions about typical cases. All of the 247 pharmacists of « Ile de la Réunion » have been approched , 44 of them returned answers, meaning 7,12% of participation. The MNU activity handeld by CYCLAMED is the most well managed with the one of Drugs (dope) elimination. In fact, average of 65,9% of wastes designed as MNU are perfectly identified by the pharmacists and 88,6% of them as Drugs (dope). The « assimilés stupéfiants » and « Piquants Coupants Tranchants (PCT) are the ones with some improvement to be made. The « assimilés stupéfiants » are mixed as identification with Drugs (dope) and the PCT medicine could be found with the MNU process indeed. The packaging and status of the drugs are not every time at the best as it could be and that means some mistakes during the process of recycling. Therefore, we are suggesting 2 displays that will help the choice of the recycling process of DIM: one is to the pharmacists, one is to the patients.
