Lay summary
I will be looking at medication storage within seven Pacific families located in Dunedin and Porirua. This will be part of a larger project called called 'Access to medicines: Exploring lived experience to inform policies and programmes', led by Professor Pauline Norris at Va’a o Tautai, University of Otago. I will look into the understanding that these families have of how to keep their medication, what information they are told by their health professionals, and what information that may be lacking.
