In Croatia, people often reach for analgetics as a self medication.About 40% of patients (15-64 years) take analgetics once monthly and 56% of them are women.
In three croatian cities (Split,Pazin,Osijek) we gave patients questionare about the role of the pharmacist in choosing analgetics. We also considered reports.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
