Prescription Pattern: A conceptual framework.

  • Ehsanullah Tarin


Physicians in their clinical practice, allopathic or contemporary medicine, pres-cribe medicinal items and clinical inter-ventions. The quality of the prescriptions can be adjudged using WHO criteria 1. In this paper, we focus on the prescription pattern of allopathic practitioners in the Pakistani context. In this regard, in addition to evidence from literature, personal experience is brought and a framework is conceptualized to analyse factors that influence and shape the physic-cian‟s prescription pattern.
