Abstract
Purpose: This study aims to investigate consumers’ demand of and perspective on drug information domestically availableand uncover hurdles that they faced while utilizing information. Methods: We conducted a survey of 101 consumers,face-to-face after obtaining informed consent. Chi-squared, or Fisher’s exact tests, and multivariate logistic modelswere used to investigate the association between participants’ perceptions and characteristics. Results: As results, participantsshowed the highest demand for “Adverse effects >90%”; “Drug interactions/Dosage/Drug-food interactions/ Indication>80%”, and utilized package inserts (52%), doctors (41%) and pharmacists (36%) most often as informationsources. Generally, the most common difficulty consumers suffered with was that “it is hard to understand (51%)”. With public sources of drug information, sixty one percent of participants were “unaware of the provision of information”,resulting in strikingly low usage rates (5~11%). Subgroup analyses indicated that the older (≥ 50 years) and thedisadvantaged might have been placed in the blind spot of information mostly developed online (p<0.05).Conclusion:In conclusion, public sources of drug information that have been developed online might fail to meet consumers’demand. Greater efforts should be made to balance the development of the information sources between online andoffline, and to increase accessibility of the established information sources.
