This research will be carried out in areas where patient and medical practitioner’s health will be best addressed. These areas include:
a) Diagnosis and prescription
Patients visit their local hospitals during any cases of ill health. In these instances the patient’s expectation is to get well.
In event that this is not met it follows therefore that it might be a case of poor diagnosis or prescription which might also put the life of the patient in danger. Medical practitioners in these hospitals also face many challenges that make them prone to making incorrect diagnosis or prescriptions. This may be a result of inadequate training or experience, cases where they have to work during odd hours or work for long hour on some of the days.
