Title Halal pharmaceutical certification : awareness among medical practitioner in Malaysia / Zainoirwan Bin Zainuddin
Abstract This study is to explore the awareness, knowledge and perception of medical practitioners such as doctors and pharmacists on halal pharmaceuticals. Significant association of ages, gender, race, religion, qualification and different statements of knowledge among doctors and pharmacists on the issues surrounding halal pharmaceuticals were reviewed and appropriate solution to the awareness issue is provided. This was a cross-sectional study, carried out in the period of August 2014 to mid October 2014, using a structured, self-administered questionnaire. Data was collected by distributing questionnaires through respective chief pharmacists, Head of Departments in various government and private hospitals in Malaysia and also self-owned doctors and pharmacists’ private practices. Study was conducted on a total of 101respondents of various medical practitioner backgrounds namely Specialists, Medical Doctors, Houseman, Pharmacist and Provisional Registered Pharmacist (PRP). Descriptive statistics (mean, standard deviation, frequency, percentage, median, inter quartile range) was applied to summarize the data. One-way ANOVA was applied to assess the association between demographic characteristics and knowledge, attitude and awareness. Results revealed that the most of the medical practitioners had a moderate-good knowledge and positive awareness and perception about Halal pharmaceuticals. Study findings showed that most of the medical professional whether in hospital settings or in retail/clinics settings had a moderate -good knowledge towards issues surrounding Halal pharmaceuticals. Significant association was found between age, gender, race, religion, degree (qualification) and different statements of knowledge. Study discovered slightly negative perception about Halal pharmaceuticals. A large majority of the respondents perceived that patients don’t have the right to ask information about sources of ingredients in medicines which are prescribed to them and it is not the practitioner obligation to take consent from the patient before dispensing any medicine which has any non-Halal materials or ingredients. It is concluded from the results that better knowledge the respondents have on Halal pharmaceuticals, better their perception and attitude is towards Halal Pharmaceutical.
