and updates a vademecum on drugs, and answers enquiries
Results: On December 31, 2002 more than 750 records on
drugs were available, and 3030 enquiries had been answered.

service, our Pharmacy Department helps meet the demand of
health-care information posed by the community and by patients

of improvement to be detected in the information to be offered to
patients fron a Pharmacy Department, and represents a tertiary
source of information for health-care professionals.
