The European Paediatric Formulation Initiative (EuPFI) works to improve the preparation of better and safe medicines for children. One area they are interested in is the “gadgets” or devices (e.g. measuring spoons, dosing cups, inhalers) that are used to help patients take their medicines. It is important that these devices are used properly to make sure the correct dose of medicine is taken.
The EuPFI devices work stream has designed a short questionnaire to understand what devices you or your child use and how easy they are to handle, to help to find ways of making the devices more user-friendly.
EPTRI supported the mainland Europe dissemination and review of survey questions by the young members of Italian, Albanian and Spanish YPAGs (Young Persons Advisory Groups), KIDS Bari, KIDS Albania and KIDS Barcelona respectively, to guarantee that the language is comprehensible and children-friendly.
The survey is addressed to boys and girls between 10 to 18 years of age and their parents.
It will take approximately 10-15 minutes to be completed. The survey is available in the following languages:
- Albanian: Paediatric Device Survey Albania
- Italian: Paediatric Device Survey Italy
- Spanish: Paediatric Device Survey Spain
- English: Paediatric Device Survey UK
