Research interests

All studies on the provision of medicine information for patients in Asia and Africa were reviewed and compared to studies in the UK by a scoping review. From the scoping review, we found that there is increasing availability of medicines information for patients, however PILs still do not meet patients’ needs and are often ineffective. Comparing the general public’s use of medicine information sources and opinions on these between countries could be useful for both countries in term of bench-marking, and future improvement. Therefore, we will identify medicine information sources used, and views on sources and perceived needs for medicine information among the general public with experience of using medicines in two countries (UK and Thailand), and  assess quality of Patient Information Leaflet in different countries.
