However, the Dutch approach is as vulnerable to politics as any policy. In a climate ripe for populism, interparty squabbles can lead to regressive drug policy approaches.

In recent years, ambitious lawmakers or candidates have used drug policy as a wedge issue. Another dimension could have been added with a comparative reference to the Dutch model of integration management ‘normalization’, which, interestingly for the definitions used throughout this book, means neither acceptance nor criminalization, but rather a discouragement akin to that used in alcohol and tobacco control (Engelsmann Author: Neil Olley.

Drug therapy problems (DTPs) (or drug related problems, DRPs) represent the categorization and definition of clinical problems related to the use of medications or "drugs" in the field of pharmaceutical care.

NATIONAL DRUG POLICY: THE NETHERLANDS INTRODUCTION Dutch drug policy is often misunderstood and misrepresented.

Beginning in the s, the Netherlands embarked on a pragmatic harm reduction approach to drugs that has resulted in a system in which priority is given to health care and prevention while, simultaneously, strong enforcement measures.

Pharmacists have become involved in medication management in a number of outpatient clinics, such as anticoagulation management, asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, HIV, and tuberculosis clinics.

The pharmacist’s role as a drug expert involves medication reconciliation, management of drug-related problems, and patient education.

The drug policy of the Netherlands is marked by its distinguishing between so called soft and hard drugs. An often used argument is that alcohol, which is claimed by some scientists as a hard drug, is legal and a soft drug can't be more dangerous to society if it's controlled.

This may refer to the Prohibition in the s, when the U.S. government decided to ban all alcohol. The Netherlands tolerates the sale of soft drugs in ‘coffee shops’. A coffee shop is an establishment where cannabis may be sold subject to certain strict conditions, but no alcoholic drinks may be sold or consumed.

The Dutch government does not prosecute members of the public for possession or use of small quantities of soft drugs. However, in the Netherlands as elsewhere, drugs cause.

Drug-related problems (DRPs) lead to substantial morbidity and mortality, as well as increased health care expenditure, which in turn affect both patients and society. Norwegian and international studies show that nursing homes (4, 5), hospitals (6, 7) and general practices (8, 9) have a high prevalence of such problems, and Cited by: Dutch policy on the use of cannabis is based on the assumption that people are more likely to make the set priorities in the detection and prosecution of offenders who have committed drug-related crimes.

v PE EXECUTIVE SUMMARY The drug policies of all the countries in the European Union have a common goal: to reduce the problems that drugs entail. Opinions on how this goal should be defined and attained vary widely. Debates about which policy initiatives can prevent or reduce the damage that illicit drugs cause to the public good are rarely informed by scientific evidence.
