How to develop a successful DUE (drug usage evaluation) program: experience of a teaching medical center.
Hosp Formul. 1994 Feb; 29(2):137-9, 142-3, 145.HF

Abstract

A drug usage evaluation (DUE) program was successfully implemented in a busy teaching medical center within 12 months of adding a full-time coordinator. The success of this program was due largely to its approval by hospital administration, the recruitment of a pharmacist with the necessary background, and the creation of a structure and process that encouraged participation by leaders of the medical staff. Although the primary objective of hiring the coordinator was to meet Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations requirements for accreditation, another achievement was confirmed cost savings. Techniques used in selecting DUE subjects and the steps taken in implementing and managing the program are presented.
