Monitoring drug side effects is one of the clinical duties of pharmacists in the hospital. The pharmacist's knowledge, attitude and practice largely determine the quantity and quality of drug side effects reporting. This study aims to study the level of knowledge, attitudes and practices of hospital pharmacists about reporting of drug side effects monitoring in Bengkulu City, the barriers to doing so, and to examine the relationship between these three variables. This study is a quantitative descriptive study with a cross-sectional approach, and the sampling technique was purposive sampling.
