|OBJECTIVE To explore the establishment of standardized training system for medication direction provided by pediatric pharmacists. METHODS Based on the questionnaire， the current needs of pediatric pharmacists and parents of children for medication direction were investigated， and the standardized training content of pediatric medication direction was constructed as a whole with reference to the survey results， instructions， databases and other literature. The basic knowledge of medication direction was integrated and summarized from the basic information of drugs such as drug name， usage and dosage， as well as the course of treatment， order of medication and special precautions， so as to form the general introduction of training content. In accordance with the principle of “integrated drug classification based on diseases”， a standardized framework of medication direction for various common diseases in children was constructed to form various theories of training content. Concomitantly， the pilot training of pharmacists in Qingdao Women and Children’s Hospital of Qingdao University was carried out， and the training effect was preliminarily evaluated. RESULTS After standardized training， the daily examination scores of pharmacists in this hospital were significantly higher than those before training， and the situation of ‘0’ times of receiving patients’ thank-you letters in the window service was broken through； the effective satisfaction rate of window service showed an increasing trend； after the pharmacist explained the medication to the patient， the times of patient returning to consult the doctor on how to use the medicine showed downward trend. CONCLUSIONS The establishment and implementation of a systematic standardized training system for pediatric-specialist pharmacists can help to further improve the professional skills and professionalism of pharmacists， strengthen the standardization of window medication direction and enhance patients’ sense of gain.
