MET and CGSI hosted Medicines & Consumer Safety Seminar & Exhibition on October 31st, 2009 at MET Conventional Centre. Brig. (Retd.) M K Nag, Director – MET AMDC welcomed the guest at the event. Mrs. Leena Mehendare, Additional Chief Secretary - General Administration Department (GAD), Government of Maharashtra inaugurated the event by lighting the ceremonial lamp. In her inaugural speech she highlighted the importance of such seminars and students’ involvement in such causes. The Chairperson of CGSI Prof. N. M Rajyadaskhsa talked about the consumer safety in the medical facilities and medicines and also guided on the role of CGSI and its active participation between the service provider and the trader. Dr. Sampada Patvardhan, further addressed on the facts about the medication errors from either sides- the doctor’s as well as the patient’s. Dr. M.M. Mittal, started with intriguing details on irrational combinations & irrational pricing in medicines. He emphasised, “Every patient is different, not just the disease but even the economical and demographic factors differ and hence each patient has his own consumer oriented issues to be answered.”

Om Sadhwani, Assistant Commissioner of the FDA educated in his session on the regulatory aspects on the drug industry and how far they are implemented. While Nitin Maniar emphasised on the role of Pharmacists. “With nutraceuticals becoming a potential market, the ethics in its marketing need to be made aware of”, said Vaibhav Kulkarni of Abbot Nutrition in his session on Nutracueticals. Kamani Oil Industires Pvt Ltd nutritionist Dr. K. D. Yadav’s session seemed to be an eye-opener with the gamut of information he provided on nutitional oils & fats for food and pharma industry. Dr. Kamat, Secretary of the CGSI concluded the event hoping for the message of the seminar to go forward. It was a successful platform for the FDA and the Pharmacists. The consumers brought up with CGSI, the contemporary issues of medical safety on topics like spurious and duplicate drugs and the unnecessary emphasis on branded drugs that makes treatment difficult for patients. The CGIS paved the way for consumer awareness and assured their consistent effort to help walk towards the milestone of greater consumerism in the medical products and facilities.
