  1. References used in a Drug Information Centre.

    Article - En anglais

    The literature sources used in 461 consecutive problem-oriented questions submitted during 1993 to a Drug Information Centre were reviewed retrospectively.

    Journals were the most frequently used literature source (36% of all quotations).

    Commonly used medical and clinical pharmacology journals, together with standard textbooks, provided the necessary information to solve more than 50% of drug information requests.

    Most questions could be answered by including the complementary use of the question/answer database Drugline.

    Drug information access is important for the improvement of rational use of drugs.

    According to the present study, this activity is possible with a fairly limited number of sources.
