ABSTRACT

Introduction: Generic medications have the same chemical formula as branded medications and are compatible with natural products. Lack of knowledge of healthcare professionals about these products leads to less use of these medications. Therefore, this study narrows the knowledge gap and the findings help authorities in prescribing those drugs. Aim: Evaluate the knowledge, attitudes and performance of pharmacists on generic products. Method: This survey was conducted from July 1, 2021 to August1.2021, in 100 pharmacists in King Hussein Hospital in Jordan. A cross-pilot study was used and the data collected tool was a self-examination questionnaire.
