Abstract
Background: Intern doctors should have knowledge about reporting of adverse drug reactions (ADRs).

Aim and Objective: The aim of the study was to evaluate the knowledge, attitude, and practices of ADR reporting of intern doctors of a tertiary care teaching hospital.

Materials and Methods: A prospective, observational, and questionnaire-based study was conducted after approval by the Institutional Ethics Committee. Pretested and validated questionnaires consisting of 10 questions about ADR reporting were administered to 40 interns. The filled questionnaires were collected and analyzed on Microsoft Excel sheet.

Results: About 40% of intern doctors were aware about drugs banned due to ADRs. About 15% intern doctors witnessed adverse drug events during their clinical posting. All the interns were aware that ADRs can be reported by medical practitioners. About 63% interns were of the opinion that all ADRs should be reported. The main barriers for ADR reporting seemed to be lack of information about where to report (67.5%) and how to report (60%). About 52.5% interns believed that managing patient was more important than reporting ADRs and reporting causes patient confidentiality issues.

Conclusions: The intern doctors are not well versed in ADR reporting and require more training.

Key words: Adverse Drug Reactions; Knowledge; Practices; Intern Doctors
