Drug labels in Hong Kong are mainly presented in words. Elderly or ethnic minorities might find it difficult to fully understand them.
The carers need to spend extra time explaining and handwriting remarks to ensure medication adherence.
We have conducted research in comparing the graphic usage of drug label / icon in US and Taiwan.
Further the study, we have compiled and revised our design with various user feedback through online questionnaire and interviews.
We have engaged the community nurses and community pharmacists team to conduct the testing / validation in Q2 2021 with their HK elderly and ethnic minority patients.
