Patient information Health campaigners' latest views on publicly-available healthcare information
This issue of HSCNews is based on the results of an HSCNews survey of 192 patient advocacy groups worldwide, conducted during summer 2006. The survey attempted to discover which healthcare information health campaigners currently believe the public needs, how that information should best be delivered, what determines whether the public regards the information as trustworthy, and who should be providing the information. Also explored were campaigners' very latest feelings about a subject of continued contention--pharmaceutical companies supplying healthcare information to the public.
