irresponsible consumers and health August 30, 2010

Posted by Bradley in : consumers , trackback

The EU Parliament is concerned about health literacy (or a lack of it) in the EU. One of the issues the Parliament has focused on is doctors’ communications about prescription medicines.

Although the study was carried out in Australia the authors seem to think this problem is more general.
