As part of their medical education, Trainee Interns (sixth-year medical students) undertake a research project in the Department of Preventive and Social Medicine to extend their knowledge of research methods, and to develop strategies to avoid or ameliorate problems in the delivery of health care.
Research questions may come from clinicians, community organisations, or university staff and allow students to resolve real-world problems.
The aim of this research project was to assess patients' and clinicians' opinions and attitudes to choosing inhalers with a lower carbon footprint than commonly used pMDI inhalers that use hydrofluorocarbon propellants.
It is hoped that the findings will help inform future choices with a view to decreasing the carbon footprint of inhaler use while maintaining efficacy and safety for patients.
During this seminar, the findings of this project will be presented.
The presentation will be both in person and online. All welcome.
