Over the last decades pharmacodynamics practice has not yielded the needed expectations in terms of enhanced quality assurance in service delivery from the study of the biochemical and physiological effect of pharmaceutical drugs on an organism. This often has made pharmacodynamics witness besetting challenges of ups and downs among practitioners. It is against this background that this paper was determined in providing strategies for quality assurance in pharmacodynamics practice in emerging economies; strategies such as collaboration/partnership; public awareness; adherence to professional ethics; training/retraining and equipping of institutions involve in pharmacodynamics with needed facilities were taking into consideration by the researchers as an avenue for quality assurance.
