Reporting medication side effects
This project is looking to understand public views on a new smartphone app that helps people self-report medication side effects.
Half the UK population take prescription medications. Whilst these drugs have clear benefits, they can also cause a range of side effects that can lead to poor quality of life and people not taking medications as prescribed.
The app being developed as part of this study will allow people to self-report side effects in a standardised way, allowing for these to be analysed across different populations.
It is being carried out by a team of researchers at The University of Manchester.
