Public views on Medicines Development

In 2013, the European Patients' Academy set out on a massive campaign to measure the attitudes and beliefs of the general public regarding medicines development.

We wanted to explore the public’s knowledge, attitudes and understanding of medicines development; at the same time, we explored the public’s current awareness of and level of involvement in medicines development; finally, we tried to explore the public’s information needs and preferences for different types of information resources vis-a-vis medicines development.

In the following infographics, we show the combined results on a European level as well as for 6 countries - France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Spain, UK. All participants were aged 18 years and over. In total, 7000 members of the public were reached with the survey (2000 in the UK and 1000 in all other countries).
