A visit to the Dr Saiful Anwar State Hospital in Malang
Aim: to promote the development of a clinical pharmacy service

This hospital in Malang is the second largest state hospital in East Java. East Java is the second most populous province in Indonesia, with a population of well over 30 million. Currently the hospital's pharmacists maintain a supply and manufacturing service but their ward/clinical service is not developed to the same extent as clinical services provided by pharmacists in the UK. The aim of this seminar was to promote a clinical pharmacy service with the objective of reducing inappropriate prescribing and medicine-related adverse effects.
