Therapeutic Thought Process (TTP) has 4 steps i.e. IESC namely Indication, Effectiveness, Safety & Compliance.
“STEPS” Approach to Prescribing Medications is basically IESC. “STEPS” stands for Safety, Tolerability, Effectiveness, Pricing & Simplicity
Based on STEPS principle, Patient’s SAFETY is #1 consideration when prescribing or recommending medications – DO NO HARM!
Here’s good news for Nigeria’s Clinicians. Safety (aka Pharmacovigilance) is the #1 item in every drug detail page for both EMDEX Prints and Mobile Apps.
Secondly, FDA Black Box Warnings and other relevant Drug Safety Communications are now fully listed in your EMDEX App. Check under the Pharmacovigilance.
For example, Metronidazole has been shown to be carcinogenic in mice and rats. What are the FDA recommendations to Healthcare professionals? Find it in your EMDEX app.
Other examples: Aminoglycosides, Amiodarone, Beta blockers, Fluoroquinolones, ACEIs, ARBs, NSAIDs, ASA, COCs, SSRIs, Ketoconazole, Glitazones, etc.
Your EMDEX App currently covers about 10,000 drug products. And for each drug product, we’ve got your patient’s safety covered as well.
Get the EMDEX App today and enjoy the digital convenience… Nigeria’s one-stop-source for drug & therapeutic information
