The Reverse Class: A New Learning Model Applied To the Teaching of Pharmacovigilance at the Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy-University Mohammed V Rabat-Morocco

The reverse class is a new teaching method that offers teachers the opportunity to design their courses in such a way to improve the willingness and desire of students to participate and become the main actors in the learning process.

In this study, the teaching and research unit in pharmacovigilance in the pharmacology and toxicology laboratory in the Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy, Mohammed V University of Rabat, has set up the reverse class for teaching two chapters of pharmacology: adverse drug reactions (ADR) and pharmacovigilance (PV) for the benefit of students from the 3rd and 4th year of the pharmacy section for the 2018-2019 academic year.

146 students participated in this survey. 43.8% and 44.5% of students said respectively that they were very satisfied or satisfied with this new teaching method. 71.5% of students think that these online courses could replace the lectures. 97.2% were satisfied with the shared video sequences and the clarity of their content. 57% of students reported having had an ADR, only 31% reported this ADR to their attending physician or pharmacist. 84% have already read an article on ADRs, and only 56%haveseenanADRnotificationform.Afterthecourses,92%confirmedthattheywillstarttonotifyADRs.and 98% confirmed the need to train health professionals in PV.
