Karnatak Lingayat Education Society Every great event, it has been well said, brings one absolute new thing into the world. Such an event was the starting of the K. L. E. Society in 1916 by seven dedicated teachers and three generous patrons. Their mission was to provide education, basically, to the children of the farming community who constitute a significant majority in Karanataka. Though modest and unadvertised was their act, yet it created a sensation in the education history in this region.

The environment today is totally different from the one in 1916, yet the mission of the founder of K.L.E. Society is pursued with the same zeal even after 92 years in the fulfillment of the vision of providing education to the needy in all spheres of human knowledge.

With a strong network of over 207 educational institutions spread in Karnataka, part of Maharastra and even in Delhi, the K.L.E. Society enjoys an unrivalled status in India, especially in the south. To advance the cause of education, the society has employed over 8046 men and women committed to academic excellence, and has over 65,518 students on its roll and Rs.50 billion in assets. Obviously, the K. L. E. Society, today stands second to none. The rush for admissions to all classes and courses right from K.G to P.G., in professional as well as traditional streams of learning speaks of the high standard that the K.L.E. Society has set over the years.

In the functioning of the K. L. E. Society, the true spirit of democracy runs. The management of the society is effectively and ably carried out by the Chairman of the Board of Management consisting of 15 members duly elected as per the constitutional provisions of the Society. The Presidents and Vice-Presidents guide the Chairman while Life Members frame academic guidelines. The financial transparency is maintained through regular audit system.

Apart from institutions of quality education and health care, the society has established the community support programs too. These institutions have earned recognition outside the boundaries of India. The collaborations with Universities abroad in the USA, UK, & Malaysia have added a new flavour to the K. L. E. Society at an international level.

KLE University, RIPER launch ACCESS 2012 to expand clinical pharmacy services

KLE Universitys College of Pharmacy, Belgaum and the Raghavendra Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research (RIPER), Anantapur, have together embarked on an initiative called as ACCESS 2012 to expand clinical pharmacy services for the benefit of other pharmacy institutions.

The programme ACCESS 2012 was adopted in response to discussion between two pharmacy institutions. The main objectives of this programme was to orient participants in practical aspects of clinical pharmacy and also to impart training for better clinical exposure in par with excellence.

ACCESS 2012 was designed to focus on the current status and need for expansion of clinical pharmacy services for better patient care. The key modules covered were hospital pharmacy management, drug information, patient counselling, pharmacovigilance and clinical research.

India will need a strong pool of medical writers to communicate the outcome of the pharmaceutical and medical technology developments. The demand comes in by the increasing number of assignments in clinical research. The big advantage for India is the vast English speaking qualified work force, according to both KLEU and RIPER.

Pharmacy candidates are the most-sought after for this assignment because of their aptitude for understanding medicine and health sciences. This calls for the need to have a dedicated training to help candidates keen to pursue medical writing as a profession. An important requirement includes the ability to communicate effectively, identify audiences needs ability to gather and integrate data, analyze and interpret the information, stated Dixon Thomas, Professor and Head, from RIPER, Anantapur.

In addition, medical writing training will focus on literature searches, simplify complex concepts, manage time, meet deadlines and master new software programmes. In fact, there are clinical research organizations, hospitals and pharma majors looking for clinically-relevant research background candidates with a having publication record, peer-review-journal involvement, added Dixon.

Delving into the issue of Medication Therapy Assessment and Management, Thomas said that implementation and monitoring of the care plan were important in clinical services. In this regard, he called for a Pharmacists Care Plan which would clearly outline each drug-related problem providing details of all potential drug-related problems. The Plan would also be a recommendation of additional healthcare services from which the patient may benefit, and identification of appropriate risk factor reduction and disease prevention strategies.

Addressing on the issue of supply chain management, Prof. M S Ganachari, Professor and Head, Department of Pharmacy Practice, KLE University, Belgaum, said that only organized and systematic distribution would benefit not just the company but pharmacies and patients. In clinical services, supply chain management was also a critical component.
