Abstract: A poster presentation regarding drug information access to pharmacists’ bedside decision making. Introduction: Provision of drug information (DI) is one of the most fundamental professional responsibilities of all pharmacists in a community pharmacy, hospital pharmacy and clinical practice. The clinical practice of drug information involves the efficient retrieval, evaluation and communication of medication information in order to assist in care decisions, develop evidence-based recommendations and improve patient outcomes. This has been associated with decreased drug costs and reduction in hospital mortality rates. Aims: To review different models of DI services in hospitals ◦ To assess DI services currently offered in an acute general hospital ◦ To assess bedside DI service requirements in acute clinical settings in the hospital
