Abstract

Objective: To evaluate whether community pharmacists provide evidence-based information to women inquiring about specific drug use during pregnancy. Design: A trained female student posing as a surrogate shopper requested information about the relative safety/risks of medications during pregnancy in two scenarios. Forty randomly selected pharmacies were surveyed in the Netherlands, Canada and Iceland, and pharmacists' recommendations were noted. Main outcome measures included the type of information that was provided,its presentation, and the source of information used. Results: A relatively small proportion of pharmacists surveyed, provided evidence-based information regarding the drugs in question. Only 14% referred to current medical literature, while 60% consulted the product monograph. Over 90% of pharmacists referred the client to a physician. Conclusions: Community pharmacists do not disseminate evidence-based recommendations when counseling women on drug use in pregnancy, and need furthereducation on resources concerning drugs in pregnancy that are currently available.
