Pharmacie clinique basée sur les preuves à l’officine : évaluation et perspectives

Abstract : Evidence Based Medecine (EBM) is the conscientious, explicit and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of the individual patient. This practice should be used in order to optimize patient care. The goal of this study was to evaluate the level of Evidence Based Practice (EBP) of the community pharmacists of France, and to investigate the factors linked to this practice. We created and broadcasted an online questionary to evaluate the level of EBP of the french pharmacists on 4 typical clinical cases, related to conventional medicine and alternative and complementary medicine. We then analysed these data using descriptive and inferential statistics (univariate and multivariate analysis). We collected 595 pharmacist answers. The EBP level of our sample is mixed, with only 11% of respondants getting the maximal score on every case. The explicative factors were the quality and quantity of information sources used by the pharmacist, as well as the type of the continuous training he get. This highlighted the importance of learning to recognize the best sources and how to use them, as soon as the university training. The students must learn to develop their critical mind to be able to face the conflicts of interest existing in the healthcare system. The profile of the owner-pharmacist is linked to a lower score, compared to the other profiles (non-owner pharmacists and 6th grade community pharmacy students). The pharmacists must be encouraged to a more evidence based practice, to be recognized as scientific and reliable healthcare providers, thus legitimate to an important role in the patient system care.
