Assignment based learning of different dosage form and newer and targeted drug delivery system among undergraduate students

Rahul Prakash Bhavasar, Yogita Dilip Sulaxane.

Abstract
Background: Knowledge of newer and targeted drug delivery system is essential for applying pharmacology in treating various clinical conditions. Using appropriate dosage form considering patient’s age, comorbidities, socioeconomic status, literacy, severity of clinical condition will enhance the effect of drug, decrease the adverse reactions and improve the patient’s compliance. Learning is most effective when student involvement, participation, and interaction is maximized.

Aim and Objectives: To evaluate improvement in knowledge of 2nd year MBBS students for availability, use and necessity of different dosage forms and newer and targeted drug delivery system by assignment based learning.

Materials and Methods: The assignment-based activity was conducted for 2nd year MBBS students on different dosage forms and newer and targeted drug delivery system. Seventy students were divided into seven groups and assigned seven questions. Pre-test and post-test were conducted.

Results: Post-test results were significantly higher than the pre-test results when compared by paired t-test. There was significant difference among the groups when Analysis of variance test was applied. Group 3, 4, 5 and 6 had gathered good information from e-resources about different drugs list of newer and targeted drug delivery system and Group 3 and 4 gathered details of liposomal and radio-pharmaceuticals based newer drug delivery system.

Conclusion: Assignment based activities should be carried out for the critical topics where recent advances are going on, newer techniques for treatment are developing and newer dosage forms are marketed. Through this activity students with poor performance can be identified and guided personally and encouraged for better performance to be a competent physician.

Key words: Assignment Based Learning; Routes of Administration; Radio Pharmaceuticals; New and Targeted Drug Delivery System; Knowledge
