Managing Minor Ailments: the Public's Preferences for Attributes of Community Pharmacies, 2013



This study aimed to:
establish the public's preferences for pharmacy service attributes when managing minor ailments;
establish the trade-offs people are prepared to make to ensure access to their preferred pharmacy service, in terms of willingness to pay (WTP); and
predict the likelihood of uptake of pharmacy services with specified combinations of attributes.

Data were collected by computer assisted personal interview (CAPI) using a questionnaire comprising a discrete choice experiment (DCE). Additional data collected using two other modes (online and postal) are not included in this dataset at present. The intention is to make those data available in due course to accompany a publication that will compare responses between the three data collection modes.
