Collaboration pharmaciens d'officine - centre antipoison et de toxicovigilance : état des lieux et perspectives en Nouvelle-Aquitaine

Abstract : Introduction : Community pharmacists contribute to primary care and face poisoning during their exercise. However, they make little use of Poison Control Centers. The purpose of this study is to analyze the relationships between community pharmacists and the Poison Control Center of Nouvelle Aquitaine (NA). Methods: Two studies have been done: a retrospective corresponding to an inventory of calls made by pharmacies of NA and received by the Poison Control Center of NA from an extraction of the national database of intoxication cases ; and a cross-section looking at the opinion that pharmacists of NA have about the services of the Poison Control Center through a questionnaire. Results: In 2017, 120 calls from NA’s community pharmacies were received by NA’s Poison Control Center. The majority concerned children aged from 1 to 4 (20,8 %), 44,2 and 51,7 % of exposures were of zero and low severities, they were mainly acutes and accidentals (92,5 and 96,6 %) and involved a pharmaceutical specialty in 28,5 % of the cases. The pharmacists questioned were 43,2 % to have already used a Poison Control Center and 61,0 % to have been consulted at least once for an opinion during intoxication. The envenomations were the most frequently encountered. Initial and continuing training for pharmacy practice remains insufficient according to the majority of pharmacists questioned (88,1%). Conclusion: Frontline health actor, the community pharmacist can be a key player in the early care of poisonings as well as in their prevention, provided that he is trained. Although the majority of intoxication cases encountered at the pharmacy are of low severity, the use of the CAPTV would allow this care to be optimized, and thus contribute reducing the number of people in emergency services.
