Experiences from the Sentinel Surveillance Network of Pharmacies in Castilla y León
The Sentinel Surveillance Network of Pharmacies in Castilla y León is a program launched by the Council of Professional Associations of Pharmacists of Castilla y León (CONCYL) in 2015 through a Collaboration Agreement between the Consejería de Sanidad of Castilla y León and CONCYL.
The objective of the network is the detection, notification and prevention of safety problems related to the use of medications, such as adverse reactions or medication errors. In addition, this network is being used for the development of research projects that contribute to a safer use of medicines; as the studies carried out real-life ambulatory settings on the safety of oral anticoagulant treatment and on the safety of statin treatment in patients treated with CYP3A4 inhibitors, of which very important results have been obtained.
The data recorded so far highlights the network of Sentinel Surveillance Network of Pharmacies in Castilla y León and corroborates the importance of the pharmacovigilance tasks of the community pharmacist in order to contribute to the well-being of the patient and the improvement of public health.
