Background: Drug-related problems (DRPs) remain a major health challenge in tertiary health services such as hospitals in Indonesia. These problems are detected and solved using classification systems such as Pharmaceutical Care Network Europe (PCNE). Therefore, this study aims to obtain a valid and reliable Bahasa Indonesia version of the PCNE. Methods: A draft of the Bahasa Indonesia version of the PCNE v9.00 was discussed by four experts from May to August 2020 using the Delphi method. Furthermore, the instrument was assessed for its readability, clarity and comprehensiveness by 46 hospital pharmacists throughout Indonesia. In October 2020, two pharmacists from Haji General Hospital, Makassar, Indonesia carried out the inter-rater agreement to assess 20 cases where the proportion of coding matches between both raters were observed. Results: The instrument was found to be valid after passing the face and content validity, and the Scale Content Validity Index (S-CVI) value for each PCNE domain was 0.91, 0.89, 0.93, 0.97 and 0.93, respectively. Moreover, there was a fair agreement between the two raters that ranged between 40%–90%. Also, kappa statistics showed a substantial agreement on the ‘Problems’ and ‘Causes’ domains. Conclusion: The Bahasa Indonesia version of the PCNE v9.00 instrument passed face and content validity as well as inter-agreement to be used in hospital settings.
