The Healthy Futures Report Infographic by McCrindle for The Pharmacy Guild of Australia - PowerPoint PPT Presentation

We’re proud to launch today, The Healthy Futures Report Infographic, commissioned by the Pharmacy Guild of Australia with research and data visualisation by the McCrindle team.\n\nWe were delighted to present a summary of the results at the Australian Pharmacy Professional National Conference 2016.\n\nThe research showed that Australians place a high level of trust in their health professionals, with GPs and pharmacists topping the ‘most trusted’ list. In this era of Dr Google, the internet is now the third most trusted source of medical information, but in an era of information overload medical products information and medicine brochures are not highly accessed as trusted sources (just 17%).\n\nWhile Australians are comfortable with their medical records being checked on an eHealth platform (46% have already registered or are very comfortable), with 55% of Australians happy for their full health records to be uploaded, there is still some work to be done to engage with the other half of health consumers.
