Research Paper: Patient and physician preferences for atopic dermatitis injection treatments

CaPPRe has published a peer-reviewed research paper on patient and physician preferences for atopic dermatitis injection treatments in Japan. Using discrete choice experiment methodology, the findings showed that physicians were more likely to value the efficacy of treating rashes, whereas patients preferred add-on treatments, were against self-administering the treatment at home, and were less concerned about cost. The differing treatment preferences of physicians and patients have implications for shared decision making and clinical practice.

What do people value when choosing a pharmacy?

In August 2017, we conducted a community value mapping study in 500 consumers  who had visited a pharmacy in the last 3 months. Participants were asked to evaluate their preferences for pharmacies offering different locations, opening hours, sevrices and cost. Results showed that there were 3 segments of consumers; those that were service driven, those that were access driven and those that were driven by loyalty.

Genetic Testing

In August 2017 we conducted a pilot study to understand the community's preferences for genetic testing. We surveyed a representative sample of 500 people across Australia and asked them to evaulate different options for genetic testing in areas of cancer, arthritis, Alzheimer's disease, bipolar disorder and multiple sclerosis. Overall, 9 in 10 people said that they would do a genetic test to find out their risk factors for certain diseases. See our infographic to find out more.
