The Internet is an important source of medicines information both for consumers and health professionals. Two studies were conducted at the University of Sydney to investigate the use of Internet-based medicines information (IBMI) by consumers and pharmacists. The first utilised focus groups to explore consumers' use of medicines information.. The access to the whole abstract and if available the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
