Abstract Underreporting of Adverse Drug Events (ADE) in the Philippines presents a persistent
challenge, hindering the optimization of the Pharmacovigilance system. This issue is
compounded by factors such as limited awareness, time constraints, and inadequate reporting
methods. To address this, a study was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of the
collaborative intervention program (MedAlisto) with FDA-CDRR for ADE reporting among
community pharmacies in Davao City. The study implemented a QR code system
disseminated through standees, cards, and stickers across fourteen local community
pharmacies. Researchers used a one-group posttest case study design and an adopted
questionnaire to collect data. Statistical analyses were performed due to non-normal data
distribution, including mean, Spearman rho, and Kruskal-Wallis test. Findings revealed high
awareness (SD = 1.01) and moderate levels of diffidence (SD = 0.44), convenience (SD =
0.44), apprehension (SD = 0.48) , dependency (SD = 0.38), repeatability (SD = 0.41) , and
liability (SD = 0.44) of consumers towards the intervention. Increased awareness and usage
of cards and standees correlated with higher repeatability and liability, while stickers mainly
enhanced convenience. Convenience (p= 0.012) was perceived as leading to increased
apprehension (p=0.369) and dependency (p=0.100) across all tools except for diffidence,
which was not linked to stickers. Dependency (p= 0.100) on standees and stickers contributed
to higher convenience (p=0.012) and repeatability (p=0.136), while liability appeared
independent in sticker usage. Users demonstrated similar levels of awareness (p=0.756),
diffidence (p=0.311), apprehension (p=0.369), dependency (p=0.100), and repeatability (p=
0.136) regardless of the intervention. However, sticker users found the system more
convenient, while standee users felt more liable for using it. While the effectiveness of
interventions in influencing user behavior did not significantly vary, prioritizing sticker
interventions to enhance user experience and encourage system usage may be beneficial.
Efforts to address perceived liability among standee users should be explored to improve
overall user satisfaction and engagement with the system.
